Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week course for anyone who would like to investigate Christianity, see what the Bible really says or ask any questions that they have.
Our next Christianity Explored course starts on Tuesday 9th May at 8pm in St John's Church Centre.
Looking at Mark's gospel, the course explores who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him.

Easter Connexions Magazine
If you want a preview or if you live outside the delivery area you can download the magazine here (in PDF format - it's quite a large file, so please be patient if you've got a slow connection).
We hope you will find it interesting. It contains details of all our Easter Services, plus articles about some of what goes on at St John's every week.
Have you been coming here long?
If you’ve joined us in the last few months, then please come to a light lunch on Sunday 23rd April, after the 10am service, in the Church Centre. Children are very welcome. The staff team will be delighted to spend some time with you and help you settle into our church family.
If you would like to come, please speak to a minister or contact the office. If you're not sure you're eligible, please come anyway!

OM Global Village Experience
From 10th to 18th June, Operation Mobilisation is running its Global Village event at The Spire in Wallasey (CH44 3BD).
Global Village is an innovative and interactive project that allows teens and adults to go on a 3-hour simulated mission trip. Created to engage all your senses – sight, smell, sound and touch – participants are immersed into an environment where they are encouraged to share the Gospel.
Whilst encountering a broken world face-to-face, participants discover more of God’s heart for people, challenging them to reflect Jesus in difficult places, local and global. Global Village is designed to motivate Christians of all ages to engage with the Great Commission.
Nathan is taking a group from Crossover to this event, so if you would be interested in taking part in this experience with them, please talk to him. To find out more, please go to the OM Global Village website.
