The Easter eggs may have been long since eaten but we are currently still in the liturgical season of Eastertide. The great Fifty Days of Eastertide form a single festival period, in which this tone of joy is sustained. It culminates with the festival of Pentecost, which, for Christians, marks the coming of the Holy Spirit in Power.
Ten days before that however, on the fortieth day, there is the oft neglected feast of the Ascension. It has been celebrated since the late fourth century. It is always the Thursday of the sixth week after Easter Sunday. In church it is the day when the Easter garden is packed away and the paschal candle, the special “Easter candle,” gets moved back to its usual position by the font. There will be a sung Eucharist at 8pm in the evening. The date for your diaries this year is 5th May. Do come along.
May Bank Holiday is the time for our May Fair. It starts at 12 noon on 5th May. Everyone welcome.
Details of all the other events can be found on the front page of this site.
St John's News is available for downloading from this site (see Documents for downloading, or the front page) and details of all these events are advertised on this site.
Details of the services for this week can be found in the menu on the left of this page. All of these are open to all and you will be very welcome to join us. If you like to be quiet, we suggest that you come to the 8am service. The 10am service caters for all ages, with music, and Sunday School. Take your pick. If you would like to just come and see the Church, it is open from 9am until 3pm Mondays-Saturdays during term time.
Contact Ken Perrett if you need more information - see "How to contact us" in the menu on the left.
Attending a Church Service for the first time, or at a different Church, can be a daunting prospect. We would like to ensure that newcomers feel welcome and comfortable with the worship. If you would like to talk to someone before coming, or would like someone to greet you on arrival and to support you during and after the service, please contact us.
You will find details of how to contact us on the "How to contact us" page.
