St John’s…….

We are a small, friendly church in Weston Village but also serving Weston Point and the Clifton road estates. We seek to know Christ in our own lives and to make him better known. We meet every Sunday for worship mostly in a traditional but relaxed format, and at other times during the week for Bible study courses, prayer meetings and social events. We run a fabulous Christmas market and have a weekly lunch club. We look after two church halls both of which are well used by the local community. The rest of this website gives more information, but you are also welcome to ring the Vicar on 01928 573798.

  1. Gosh, the inside of this building has changed over the last 60 odd years since I was last in it. Thankfully those long wooden bench’s have been replaced with what looks like very comfy chairs and the inside looks very smart. Although I was a Chapel lad, both the Methodist Chapel and St. Johns Church, were friendly rivals in the past and every year held joint Whitsun Walks trough the village. They took annual turns leading the procession from the Bottom of Weston Road, to the top where they held feasts when they got to their relevant church halls. Almost everyone in the village were either Methodists or C of E, and both places of worship were full on Sundays. Because the village was so close in friendships, people often visited either of these buildings, especially to watch a Christmas Nativity or some special event like a wedding. Unfortunately both churches seemed to lose their congregations, resulting in the Chapel being pulled down and both schools merging into one in the new school in the late 1960’s. Well done to St. Johns, for keeping this wonderful building going through those difficult times and keeping it’s doors open to worshipers.

    • Thank you for your kind comments about the building. I will pass them onto members of our PCC. A small congregation continues to meet Sunday by Sunday and we punch above our weight as my lay reader once said in all that we do in the community and in very different times to the ones you describe. The building is indeed very beautiful and we’re very proud of it! Kind regards Vivien Gisby (Vicar)
