New Sermon Series : Following on from our Summer series on "Meet Jesus", we will "Meet the Father" and then "Meet the Spirit", as we continue to meet with the Trinity. The aim of the series is to help us meet with God as Jesus did and draw us into the relational experience Jesus had with His Father and the Holy Spirit. The readings will therefore reflect Jesus being affirmed by the Father and also the Father speaking of the Son in the Old Testament and then Jesus meeting with the Spirit and the Spirit sent by Him to His Church and to the world.

We still need to be cautious as the number of Covid infections is increasing a little. If we're inside, we ask people to continue to wear a mask, please.
People who have any symptoms of Covid-19 should not attend Church.

The Renewal Programme : This year is its 50th Anniversary. It was started by three churches in Newham, initially as a response to racism – but provides supported housing for homeless people, support for refugees and migrants, a food bank, and education services and much more.  All possible due to generous giving by many including St John’s.  One of the trustees, the Rev’d Tim Dean will be with us this Sunday
