St John’s CofE Church, Stanground
St John’s was built around 800 years ago. It is a very beautiful building with a special atmosphere, a great place to come to worship and pray. Local families have celebrated weddings and christenings there ever since and this still goes on today.
Our worship at St John’s has a traditional feel, but we hope isn’t stuffy and boring. People who come for the first time often say, ’It was so peaceful, there was something about it, I felt better.’ When Christians meet together Jesus is there with them, and his presence brings spiritual life to us.
St John’s is also the church where big events happen, like our Remembrance Day service and the Candlelight Carol Service and Midnight Mass. Every year at the end of June we have a ‘Patronal Festival’ when we have a community party to celebrate Stanground’s own parish church.
