The Church on the Common

Welcome to St John's Church - Click to see a mapWe at St John's, Harpenden welcome you to our web site.  We are a lively, friendly, Anglican church set on the edge of the Common in the south of Harpenden.

Our Vision Statement: Our vision for St John's is to sustain and develop our vibrant all-age worshipping community, living out our faith in Jesus Christ in all we do, so that more and more people in our Parish are touched by his love.
Our ministry team and congregation form a community of people who come together regularly to worship, pray, study and pursue a wide range of church based and social activities.

We believe that every person, regardless of age, sexual orientation, background or religious experience is valued and equal. We seek to follow the example of Jesus Christ, who welcomed all people into his care.

Our main service is at 9:30 am each Sunday.  On the first Sunday of the month we hold an All Age Eucharist (see the For Children page).St John's is like every where else - no one will sit in the front row!  On remaining Sundays we have Parish Communion and run a Junior Church and Little Gems (for under 4s).

Our mission statement: To welcome everyone warmly and enable all to grow spiritually - nourished and transformed by reverent and relaxed worship and inspired to live and share God's love.
We place particular emphasis on nurturing young people; our Junior Church divide into groups on the basis of age, with up to 30 children attending on a Sunday.

We publish a Parish Magazine 4 times a year; this is distributed to all households in the Parish and can also be collected from St John's.  We also publish an electronic newsletter approximately monthly.
