Monthly Prayer Meeting

As of this Sunday, the first Sunday evening of the month will be the St. John’s Monthly Prayer Meeting. All are welcome to join together via Zoom to pray and reflect. Please email for connection details.

At the Church gate…

Next time you are about and about, why not walk past the Church and have a look what’s going on? There are FREE books, games and activities to take, a table where you can leave clean used items for others to enjoy, as well as activities and sometimes challenges to take part in.

Why not have a look today? Don’t forget to stay safe whilst out and about!

If you need any support during this time, email 

Christian Aid Week!

Dear St. John’s Family and Southbourne Community, This year we are moving to online e-envelopes as we are unable to deliver paper envelopes for Christian Aid during lockdown. YOUR GIFT WILL SAVE LIVES!

Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us all. Now is the time to reach out to our neighbours near and far. Poor communities are hit hardest by coronavirus. It’s affecting families living in overcrowded refugee camps, and many vulnerable people who have no water to clean their hands. With your support, we can limit the impact of the virus, with life-saving soap and water.

Please pray about making a donation, no matter how small and please share an e-Envelope with your family and friends. May I encourage you to do it NOW, as if you are like me you may intend to do it, but never get around to it – Donate here!

Christian Aid Week is 11th -16th May, but you can donate any time. Many I thank you in advance for your generosity, especially during this pandemic. Your prayers are really appreciated for Christian Aid as they respond during this crisis abroad.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all who are affected in Southbourne. Keep safe and may God bless and protect you. AMEN.
