Welcome to St John’s Wood Church

We come together into church to worship and glorify God, and to encourage one another; we go out together to bring Christ’s love to our part of London and beyond. We invite you to join us in this double journey into God’s love. “Welcome one another, therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” (Romans 15.7)

Vicar’s Welcome

Safeguarding

Safeguarding is at the heart of the life of our parish, and is a fundamental expression of the  values of the Christian gospel. The Vicar and PCC strive to make the parish church a safe place for all, especially children and vulnerable adults.  We promote good safeguarding practice as integral to the mission, ministry and service of the whole church. See our Safeguarding Policy and other important information here.

Lady Chapel

A place of prayer

The inside of the church is a haven of peace. We keep the Church open during the day, for those who just want to rest in God’s presence, or to light a candle, or to write down a prayer request which we will use in our daily prayers , or simply to find stillness. The church is usually open between 9 and 5pm Monday to Friday (and often on Saturdays). On Sunday the Church is open during and between service times.

A strong musical tradition

Music is one of the principal ways in which we glorify God. We have an exceptional professional choir that sings on Sunday mornings, and an enthusiastic volunteer choir to lead a monthly evening service (new recruits always welcome).

A long history of service

Since it started life as a funeral chapel for the people of Marylebone, service to the local community has been part of the church’s DNA.  Our interest is by no means limited to those who come to services.  We believe strongly in the traditional calling of a parish church to be a resource and encouragement for the wider community; we are available to those who need us (especially in times of joy or sadness; and we cherish our friendships with other faith communities in NW8.  We have many links with local schools and organizations.
