Welcome to St John’s!
We are a lively evangelical Anglican Church in Buckhurst Hill. Through preaching, teaching, worship, prayer, fellowship and outreach we long to see transformation and change in our community, as we tell others about who Jesus is and how he can transform our lives. If you are visiting our church for the first time please come and say hello.
What We Believe
We are a church open to anybody, and all are welcome because we believe that we are people who think, say and do wrong things. The good news is that we can be changed by the love of God.
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that his death on the cross reconciles us with God, and that the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives can transform us. This transformation is called the Christian life and we believe it’s the best life there is, both now and after death. We want others to know this too, as we believe God’s invitation to new life is for everyone.
We find all this explained in the Bible, which we love to read and believe is different to any other book. It teaches us, and guides us each day.
As a community of Christians we like to spend time together in worship, prayer, fun and friendship. This is called the ‘church’. And we love it!
