Welcome to St John’s Newtownbreda

All our activities and organisations are open to everyone in the community.

On Sundays we come together – all ages – to celebrate the Good News that we can do these things through the love and grace and mercy of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Just with any family, we always have room for more and we become members together through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and knowing Jesus Christ His Son as our Saviour and Lord.

Our Vision

‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

Matthew 25: 37- 40 (NIV)

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

‘Whatever you did for the one of the least of these ….. you did for me’

As followers of Jesus Christ, we take these words seriously.

We seek to find ways to provide welcome, nourishment – spiritual and physical, friendship, support, shelter, encouragement and a sense of belonging.
