Given the current situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), from now on, and until further notice, we are no longer able to conduct worship services or open the church for personal prayer and reflection at St John's. While we are unable to meet together corporately in church, we will post recordings of the reading, talks and prayers, along with a couple of worship song links that may be helpful. We really hope that everyone being able to listen to these will help us to stay connected while we look forward to the time when we can meet together again.

St John's Church, 2 St John's Road, Penge, London SE20 7EQ
Sunday 10.30 am
Types of Service
The first Sunday of the month is Family Communion and we have an All Age service on the fourth Sunday of the month.
All other services are Morning Worship where the focus is on bible teaching.
Sunday School (4-11 year olds)
On a Family Communion Sunday the children start the service in church so they are able to come to the Lord's Table with their families. For Morning Worship Sundays they are invited to join their groups before the service starts and will stay out for the whole time. For All Age services they will stay in church with the church family.
Young people aged 11+ are expected to worship and serve as adults in the main congregation and to meet later on Sundays for bible study and prayer.
