St John's

What We Do...

St John's offers a whole range of services, activities and events and we always welcome visitors to these.


Our main service on a Sunday is a Parish Communion at 9.30am. Our Junior Church meets at the same time and joins the adult congregation at the beginning, for the Peace, for a blessing during the giving of Communion and at the end, when they tell us all about what they've been doing, often showing fantastic craft items or giving a short presentation. They also sometimes give the readings or lead intercessions. On the first Sunday of the month the service is specially planned for us all to worship together, whatever our age, in a less formal setting, see All Together @ St John's

Every Tuesday we hold a quiet reflective Communion Service at 7.30pm, in the Lady Chapel, using a form of liturgy from Iona. You are very welcome to join us for what is always a peaceful and restorative time together.

Services are also held on special feast days and to remember other important events.

Forthcoming Dates

Community Hub

Our community hub is being set up in 2017, initially to run and host groups that used to meet at the Kaleidoscope Children's Centre in Kidlington. A number of activities are now "up and running" so for more details about the Hub, please see here.

Summer Craft Mornings

Thursdays 3, 10, 17, 24 August - 12noon

For children (or those young at heart) for our regular crafting time. Come and make all sorts of fun things, or just relax over coffee and cake.


St John's is also the venue for other social events for ourselves, our families, friends and neighbours - either organised by the church cmmunity or by local people hiring the facilities. Forthcoming events are shown here, with more details available by clicking here.
