Booking for Sundays

Welcome to the St John's Sunday meeting booking form! 

Please note: Bookings for each Sunday will open on Tuesday mornings, and close at 3pm on Friday. 

We're pleased that we are able to continue to meet physically in the Church building on Sunday mornings. In order to support NHS Test and Trace, we are asking that you book before you arrive. We will store your contact details for 21 days to assist with NHS Test and Trace; this data may also be used to help with the administration of our Sunday gatherings, but won't be used for other purposes.

Remember: in line with Government guidelines please do not book if you or anyone in your household have any Covid symptoms, or have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace. There will be a strict socially distanced seating area for those who prefer or need it. Face coverings must be worn in this area.

Please contact the if you have any questions.
