Family Church

Sundays 4-5pm. We gather together for worship and seek to explore the Bible in kinetic and creative ways. The content of the Family Church is tailored for families with 4-11s but pre schoolers and young people are welcome to come along and join in. While we’re waiting for our church building to be renovated, we have been meeting on the church lawn, and soon will have use of a local indoor space. Please email Kim at families@stjohnssouthbourne if you’d like more information or are interested in coming along.

Friday Fellowship

An opportunity for families to connect after school, anytime between 3-6pm to build friendships with each other and share a meal. Matt, the Vicar here at St John’s is hosting the Alpha course for parents and young people (if present) while children are gathered in small groups for their focus time with incentives and rewards for Bible reading at home. If you’d like to know more email Kim at or follow this link to the church calendar and click the date/ dates you’d like to sign up to. Please book separately for each date you’d like to attend.
