All Age Eucharist
(1st Sunday of the month)

This 9.30am service is aimed at all ages with a simplified, easy to follow, Eucharist format.  The teaching (or sermon) is pitched at a level intended to sustain the interest of all ages - from young children to adults.

As always all children (and non-confirmed adults) are welcome to receive a blessing at the altar during communion.

The service lasts for approximately 1 hour and is followed by the usual 'Coffee Time' in the Church hall.



The St John's Brownie Pack is the 19th Harpenden - it meets Thursdays at 6:15pm during term time.
