Welcome to St John's Church, Watford

Fr David StevensonWelcome to St John's Church, Watford, a church which lies in the heart of this Hertfordshire market town, and is a member of the Church of England.

We are a growing and diverse fellowship of Christians proud of our Anglican heritage, and we strive to provide the most dignified worship we can. Our main Sunday service is at 10:30 and is a traditional Anglo-Catholic Eucharist Service. We also have a regular programme of weekday communion services as well as an occasional Taizé service - our What's On page contains full details and times. Our Sunday School is going from strength to strength and meets every Sunday morning in our parish rooms; we also have a family oriented Messy Church on the first Saturday of each month.

Social events are also important to us at St John's; and we have regular coffee mornings, "coffee and art" sessions, under-fives playgroup and Sunday morning Breakfast Club for our youngsters.

St John's Church in Sutton Road, Watford, has been a place of prayer serving the local community since 1873, marrying couples, baptising children and adults, and helping people say goodbye to loved ones at funerals. St John's Church continues to serve the local community to this day, if we can be of service please do get in touch.

We are currently working with the Diocese and the Department for Education to open St John's Church of England Primary School. Visit the school's website or facebook page for further information, and up-to-date news about the project.

We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive community, welcoming all those who join us for our services and fellowship. If you would like to find out more about us please do contact us, or come along to one of our services and meet us.
