In the community

At St John's we believe that being a church is not just about meeting in a big building on Sundays. We want to help build up and support the community around us, and to help us do that we offer a variety of events and groups.

ABC toddlers and Toddler Group are our friendly groups for pre-school children and their parents/carers. Toddler group meets in St John's hall on Friday mornings at 10am, ABC meets in Riverside Community Centre on Parkstone Road on Thursday afternoons at 1.30pm.

Kick It is a group for dads and kids to have fun together, and meets on alternate Saturday mornings in St John's hall.

Learn English  aims to help those who do not have English as their first language. Various meetings in the week.

Mini music  teaches music, rhythm and fun to pre-school children. Mini Music is popular and pre-booking is needed.

The Globe is for international students to meet and make friends from all over the world in a relaxed atmosphere.
