A warm welcome to you.  St John’s is a friendly church at the heart of our parish in Fareham. We seek to connect people of all ages and life situations through friendships with each other and a relationship with God. Our key values are hospitality, generosity, being outward focused and welcoming.  Whatever your age or background there’s something for you. Whether you’re simply curious or seriously seeking, you’re very welcome.

What’s Happening

This Tuesday, 10th May, pray for the nation? The Archbishops Of Canterbury and York have called for us to join them for a week of prayer for our nation this week and you can find out all the details here. To mark this special call to prayer St John’s is going to be open all day (11am- 8.30pm) for prayers based around the Lords Prayer. Regular attendees and never attendees are all invited and welcome. The day is going to finish with a special service starting at 7.30pm for half an hour of singing followed by the traditional Anglican Compline service to end the day.

Pentecost Praise! On Sunday 15th May between 6-8pm at Holy Trinity Church Fareham there is going to be a great gathering of Fareham churches to celebrate the awesome gift of Pentecost. There will be drama, words and music. Please do come along if you fancy an evening of revival in the gift of the Spirit.

It is very much the opinion of the St John’s community that everyone is welcome wherever and whenever they feel called to come. You are welcome at any service, any week. This welcome extends to absolutely anyone regardless of age, past history, present problems (or otherwise), whether you have attended church your whole life or you have never been. Come in, we are here and we would love to meet with you, we’re not scary, we promise! You’ll not sit in someone’s seat, we promise! If you feel nervous about coming in just say hello to one of the sides people (the people who greet you as you come in) and ask them to guide you.

ChurchYou are loved and people care for you. No one is immune from having a difficult time. Members of the St John’s church leadership team and prayer team are available but if you need someone to talk to, please don’t suffer in silence. You are loved and cared for. You can contact the Samaritans 24 hours a day by calling 116 123 (this is free) or email jo@samaritans.org or just pop into the church when it’s open to have some time in contemplation or to talk to someone there.
