Worship at St John’s
The worship at St John’s is in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. The clergy dress in cassocks and chasubles, and services on Sundays culminate with the sacred drama of communion. We have communion every week – the Eucharistic prayer is not sung, though other key parts of the liturgy are.
The choir is an important part of our musical heritage. They sing an anthem during communion each week, and equally importantly, lead the congregation in ‘Happy Birthday’ whenever someone has a special day! Our musical director is RSCM-trained.
On the first Sunday of the month, we have an all-age service, which is a little more informal and interactive than our regular services. Baptisms often take place in this service.
In addition to our Sunday service, we also have morning prayer each from Monday to Thursday on Zoom at 9am. The link is here, the password is ‘Stansted’, and anyone is very welcome.
