Welcome to St. John's

St John's is the Church of England parish church which serves the people and town of Beeston, in Nottinghamshire.  

Our worship, theology and spirituality (what we believe, and how we relate to God and one another) are broadly in the modern catholic style - but if that's new to you, there are plenty of opportunities to find out more about what that means.  We believe in creating spaces where people can encounter something of the mystery and love of God, we encourage one another as we ask questions, and make connections between faith in Jesus and our everyday lives, and we try to be open to different ways of seeing.  

Whatever brings you to St John's we hope you find a warm welcome and space for encounter with God, with community and with yourself.
