Sacraments banner

The worship of God has taken place in St John’s since it was first consecrated over 130 years ago – this is the very reason our forebears built this beautiful church for the people of central Watford. Through this worship we seek to reach out to God our Heavenly Father, who in Jesus Christ has already reached out to us with arms wide open in love.

The following are our regular services taking place at St John's - details of additional services throughout the year can be found on the What's On page.

Sunday Service

Our Parish Mass is celebrated each Sunday at 10.30am. Our Young Church (Sunday School) join us for the start of the Service and for holy communion. Activities for Children are provided every Sunday. Everybody is welcome to join us for thie beautiful service.

Our church tradition is often referred to as being Anglo Catholic or 'High Church'. We strive to make our worship as beautiful as we can, yet accessible to all. We value the use of incense, candles, vestments and liturgy to provide a meaningful experience for all who come to St John's. The wisdom of the centuries has taught us that the same structure each Sunday helps us to create a prayerful rhythm and allows us to go deeper into God's love.

Evensong

Monthly Evensong according to the Book of Common Prayer. Held on the first Sunday of every month, at 5pm.

Friday Service

Said Eucharist at 10am.

Messy Church

Once a month on a Saturday from 11am to 1pm, St John's Church runs Messy Church - two hours of fun, games, food and craft. It's a great time for all the family.



Wherever you are in life or wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome at St Johns! Our prayer is that you will be richly blessed as you come and add your own voice to the living tradition of the Church here in this place as we with St John and all the living and departed worship and adore the true and living God.

Parish Lunch

Our next Parish Lunch will be held at 12:30 on Sunday 17th March. Please let us know if you plan on coming, or sign up online. Everyone is welcome to this relaxed meal. No fixed cost just a donation towards the cost of the food.

Table Top Sale

On Saturday 30th March from 10:30 to 15:00 we will be holding a Table Top sale in the Community Hall on Estcourt Road. It’s a bit like a car boot sale but without the car. So, if you have things you want to sell, why not rent a table from us for only £10.

Fundraising Concert

Our next concert in the St John's Music series will be held at 16:00 on Sunday 31st March. Coming straight from sell-out performances in Edinburgh and London, Hidden Pearl Productions presents "Turn Back the Clock", a selection of songs and monologues by Joyce Grenfell, adapted and performed by Cheryl Knight. Tickets (£10; under-18s £2) are available online.
