The worship of God has taken place in St John’s since it was first consecrated over 130 years ago – this is the very reason our forebears built this beautiful church for the people of central Watford. Through this worship we seek to reach out to God our Heavenly Father, who in Jesus Christ has already reached out to us with arms wide open in love.
The following are our regular services taking place at St John's - details of additional services throughout the year can be found on the What's On page.
Our Parish Mass is celebrated each Sunday at 10.30am. Activities for Children are provided every Sunday. Everybody is welcome to join us for thie beautiful service.
Our church tradition is often referred to as being Anglo Catholic or 'High Church'. We strive to make our worship as beautiful as we can, yet accessible to all. We value the use of incense, candles, vestments and liturgy to provide a meaningful experience for all who come to St John's. The wisdom of the centuries has taught us that the same structure each Sunday helps us to create a prayerful rhythm and allows us to go deeper into God's love.
Said Eucharist at 10.30am.
Wherever you are in life or wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome at St Johns! Our prayer is that you will be richly blessed as you come and add your own voice to the living tradition of the Church here in this place as we with St John and all the living and departed worship and adore the true and living God.
