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.

You are always welcome; come and meet us. For full details of all the services and meetings that happen weekly, please just click on our Latest Notice Sheet.
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, gender, sexual orientation, 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. If you are worried about bringing noisy children, don’t be, we are a family from the very youngest to the most mature!
If you’re unsure about a ‘formal’ church service, come and join us on the third Sunday of each month, as seen in The Portsmouth News.
If you like a more traditional feel or a contemplative communion service is what suits you better we have details of all our services via this link.
You 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or just pop into the church when it’s open to have some time in contemplation or to talk to someone there.
