St John's is a family friendly church with an enthusiastic group of people of all ages. We believe that Christ should be at the heart of our community.  We are here to worship, pray and have fun together as well as to serve our local community in Fareham.

On Sunday morning, we have a traditional service of Holy Communion at 9am followed by coffee and then a Family Friendly service at 10:30am.  We have 'Messy Church' once a month. Music is provided by a music group backed up by a number of singers.

Sunday


  • Holy Communion with Hymns

    The 9:00am service offers a more traditional style of worship with hymns and Holy Communion. The service aims to finish by 9:50am so that those who have attended the 9:00am service can enjoy a coffee and chat with those who arrive to attend the 10:30am service.

    Whatever your preferred style of worship, why not join us for refreshments between the two services?

    Every Sunday at 9 a.m. for 50 minutes

  • Family Time

    This is an all-age service which makes use of our different learning preferences to explore God's word and to worship him. It is a deliberately more relaxed form of worship which is both child and adult friendly. Bean bags, coffee/tea/juice and cakes (available throughout the service) and the four different activities of: actors, artists, ponderers and prayers all being essential components. There is a maximum of three songs and the first is always a children's song which may be played by the worship group or via CD track over the sound system. The aim is to keep the service to a max of one hour

  • First Sunday Service

    This is a service for adults and held in the church building while the children and their carer[s] attend Messy Church in the church hall. [Please note Messy Church does not operate in January and August, and the First Sunday Service is then replaced by Together in Worship].

    Every First Sunday Service service is designed for adults and is built around an aspect of living as a Christian in today's world. Each calendar year has a series of sermons with a common theme, but all provide teaching for those seeking to follow Jesus. Musically, modern worship songs predominate, which is combined with a minimum of liturgy, giving an informal service lasting about one hour..
