Welcome to St. John's, Elmswell



St John’s is a friendly, evangelical church in Elmswell, Suffolk, mid-way between Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket. Our goal is to know Christ and make him known as we serve our community. Our services include a mix of contemporary worship songs and traditional hymns and reveal our reliance on the Bible as the Word of God and our trust in the Holy Spirit. We are strongly committed to introducing and building people up in the Christian faith through Bible teaching, prayer, worship, discipling and friendship.

As a church family, we aim to:
• Demonstrate God's love to the world
• Declare the good news of Jesus Christ
• Depend on God as part of his family

We are a broad range of people including families with young and grown-up children, pensioners, young professionals and many others. Whoever you are, of whatever age, you're very welcome to join us.

Whether you are interested in our history, wish to get married, have a child baptised, want to investigate Christianity or are looking for a place to worship and meet other Christians, we would love to see you. Why not have a look around our site to see who we are and what we do?

Harvest

We thank you Father God each year,
For the bounty you provide,
For the farmer and the fishermen,
And the joy of harvest tide.

With the harvest moon above us,
And the corn beneath our feet,
And the well-stocked supermarket shelves,
At the Co-op down the street.

But we are just a third they say,
Who have enough to eat,
For the other two thirds of our world,
There's no shop down the street.

Through climate change and war and greed,
There's no joy in their lives.
No food to feed the family,
Or the baby when he cries.

Inspire us Lord to share our wealth,
Like Your love flowing free,
For Jesus said, "All those you help
You give it as to Me."
