I have been worshipping at St John’s since my now 30 year old daughter was in crèche! Right from being a new Christian I have been very involved in what is going on at the Church and I have been involved in a small group. I love this church family and our strong committed leadership and our clear sense of purpose. Christ is glorified and adored and the impact of St John’s stretches far afield in so many different ways.
I first joined St John’s when I started at Royal Holloway in 2000. From the very start I was warmly welcomed into the church and soon started playing guitar with the worship team. Since then I have had the fantastic opportunity to serve with the worship team, playing and leading music, as well as behind the sound desk and occasionally a camera. I thank God for the amazing friends I have been blessed with at St John’s, the chance to praise and worship with so many servant hearted people, and the opportunities to grow in my relationship with Him.
By being a part of both practical and spiritual ministries in the church God keeps showing me that “As the body without spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead” (James 2:26). Being a part of the church family means sharing all the joys and challenges of this incredible spiritual journey with friends, and coming together on Sundays to enjoy lively worship and sound teaching.
The great thing about St Johns is the people. I have found the best way to get to know people has been to join one of the Life Groups, go for coffee after the church service and to get involved in the life of the church in as many ways as I could. Very importantly for me has been the wonderful youth work. My daughters have been encouraged in their faith right from their toddler years up to their teens and have made lots of friends along the way.
