Welcome to St. John's, Elmswell

Please join us this Sunday at 10:30am in the church
or online via Facebook (live) or YouTube (from 1:00pm)

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:


Angels and Archangels sing,
  Cherubim on golden wing,
    Praise and glorify their King.

Jesus their King is coming home,
  To take His place on sapphire throne,
    Prepared for Him and Him alone.

For a while to sinners given,
  By His dying we are shriven.
    Death is conquered! He is risen!

Purest love, eternal light,
  King of Kings, with raiment bright,
    Wears the crown that is His right.

Let us now our tribute bring,
  Praise and glorify our King,
    Bowing down to worship Him.

Rejoice and sing and tell the story,
  Jesus seated now in glory,
    Son of God and God most Holy.

Father, Holy Spirit, Son,
  One in Three and Three in One;
    Jesus our King is coming home!
