Welcome to St. John’s Church, Southbourne. The Parish, which is the south west corner of the Diocese of Chichester is a warm vibrant community of worshipping people, who look forward to welcoming you either on a Sunday or during the week. We cater for all ages with many groups and activities for children, young people and adults.
Revd. Matt Luff and team lead the varied worship programme, with different services to suit different needs and styles. From traditional to contemporary, reflective to engaging, you will find something for you.
