Lent Lunches

Lent Lunches 2020

St John’s will be hosting a series of lunches on Saturdays in Lent from 12-2pm in the Tamberlin Room.  The lunches are hosted by volunteers to raise money for a charity of their choice and so donations are asked for (but are optional!). 

Funds raised (including any Gift Aid) are split between the charity being supported (75%) and St John’s (25%). Lunches start on Sat 7th March so come along to enjoy excellent food and company while raising money for good causes – many of us find an excuse to go every week!

Green Spaces in Croydon by Ken Martin

Croydon Council are carrying out a survey of our green spaces in Croydon removed from the Local Plan in 2018 on how our green spaces are used. Alarmingly by zooming in on the map in the attached link it has St John’s Church on the map, particularly the Memorial Garden.

Also other green spaces such as Shirley Recreation Ground and Millers Pond are mentioned.

The Local Plan is used by the Planning Authority to advise on recommended use, so if removed from the Plan then the Authorities can look to change the use of the green space. Particularly as Central Government are urging Local Council to increase their Housing Stock.

Please take 5 mins to click on the link, then on every green space starred that you use, filling in the survey how you use these spaces and what they mean to you. If we ignore these surveys it is feared Croydon Council will use the information that green spaces are not valued, so leaving them open to redevelopment. The survey closes 15th July

Informal Worship

This is a clue to the subject of our Informal Worship on Sunday 2nd June at 5pm.

Evensong at St. Johns


From the 9th June we will be holding a monthly Evensong at 5pm.
Taking place as the day begins to end, this service is a wonderful opportunity to pause and reflect. You are welcome to join in or just sit back and let the words and music draw you towards God and help you to prepare for the week ahead. The service lasts about 45 minutes.
