New to Church?
Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.
Where & when does the church meet?
Our Church meets every Sunday at 9am or 11am at St. John the Evangelist Church, Pemberton Gardens, Upper Holloway. We have a Sunday Evening Service on the 4th Sunday each month at 6.30pm. Please note there is limited parking by the church on Sunday mornings.
What should I expect when I visit the church?
You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go.
Our 9am Communion Service is quieter by nature with three hymns/songs; no children's work; a twenty minute talk explaining a passage from the Bible with a strong desire to help people practically work through what they are learning; and communion. This service will last up to one hour fifteen minutes.
Our 11am service is noisier by nature and led by our vibrant worship team with several worship songs. You will hear a twenty to thirty minute talk explaining a passage from the Bible with a strong desire to help people practically work through what they are learning. Readings and prayers are led by the congregation and testimonies of God’s awesome works in people’s lives regularly shared. Approximately halfway through the service the children and young people will head off to their groups with this being announced from the front. The service will last approximately 90 mins.

What happens to the kids at church?
We have a fantastic programme for the kids at the Church:
Creche in Children’s room at back of church(up 3 years). Children must be accompanied by their parent/carer at all times.
Children aged 4-10 in small hall and vestry weeks 1, 3, 4, 5.
Young people aged 11-18 in log cabin in rear church garden weeks 1, 3, 4, 5.
Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!), then someone will announce when the children and young people need to go to their groups.
For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.
Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
Will I have to join in?
Not at all! You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
