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?

arrowThis month's Poem:


God's Banquet

God in his love created me,
  With His breath gave life to me,
    That He might delight in me.

But, oh my sin was death to me.
  Came Jesus then to rescue me,
    By His blood to set me free.

So in His grace He washes me,
  As His child, adopted me.
    What great love He has for me.

Now God Himself refreshes me,
  His Spirit comes to dwell in me,
    And by His power, enables me.

In wedding garment made for me,
  God to His table beckons me,
    What a banquet offers me!

Praise be to God, both One in Three.

Written for the preface of a cookery book!
