Welcome to St. John’s Church, Southbourne, a friendly community of people following Jesus, who look forward to welcoming you on a Sunday or during the week. There is lots going on for all ages, with many groups and activities for children.

In the ‘Headlines’ box you’ll find a link to this week’s newsletter and all the latest information.

If you would like any more information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Church office. The church building is currently only open when services or other activities are taking place. If you would like to visit, please contact us to arrange a convenient date and time.

This week’s letter from our vicar, Tom Robson, for Sunday 3rd March:

This Sunday at 10am come and hear how Jesus, chose the cross out of love for us. We also welcome guests from the Emmanuel International Conference, and they are our Mission Partners for March. At the 4pm, Jesus’ parable will speak to us of how God’s forgiveness must lead to our own forgiveness, quite a challenge! We will also have a visitor from E.I. coming to share.

If you are visiting us on Sunday, please ask the welcome team for a welcome pack and prayer is usually available after our services. Our aim is: ‘Together, to make Jesus known.‘ We would love the chance to get to know you and share more of the life and faith of our church. I am usually around Tuesdays and Thursdays (term-times) from 10am-12pm in the Church Centre.

God bless, Tom
