It is never ordinary in church, but the season of the year between Trinity Sunday (June) and All Saints' Day (November) is traditionally referred to as 'Ordinary Time'.
Our worship patterns continue as before, and each Sunday's services are open to all.
All are welcome!
Find it tricky, awkward, embarrassing or just hard work being in church with a toddler?
Well here at St. John’s we are launching a new and exciting way to be able to enjoy coming and being in church for mum’s, dad’s or carers with young children.
Once a week, on a Thursday morning (term time only) at 10am–11am we are holding a Little Angels, pre-school praise group. It is aimed at anyone who has a child aged between 0 -5 years old. The group will start with 25 – 30 minutes of action songs, instruments, games, interactive storytelling and short prayers in a fun and exciting way to introduce youngsters to God and Jesus. Then there will be time for tea/coffee, fellowship and toys.
Here at St. John’s we want to make the church a warm and welcome place for everyone to be able to enjoy and for young children to be able to express themselves and enjoy taking part in an act of worship.
So come along and make this your church.
New website under construction...
We have a new (and as yet only trial) website in very embryonic form. Please take a look.
We are the parish of St John The Evangelist in Highbridge, Somerset. Welcome to our web site.
St John’s is a friendly and accommodating parish church and you will be made very welcome.
We provide a range of worship styles throughout the week, and also a variety of opportunities to share in the life of our local neighbourhood, the town of Highbridge.
Typically, Sundays feature at least two acts of worship, beginning with a traditional Holy Communion using the Book of Common Prayer, at 8am. This is ‘said’, not featuring any hymns. It is followed at 9.30am by Parish Communion, using Common Worship: a sung communion with hymns and responses. Various other acts of worship are offered on particular Sundays. The details can be found on our diary or on our ‘Worship’ pages (follow the link above).
There are many other activities always going on in and around the church. Many are described on this site.
The church is open every day, except Mondays, so please do visit us, to stop and pray, to sit quietly or simply to soak up the atmosphere of the building.
All worship is open to everyone.
