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?

John 3:16

For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life.

arrowThis month's Poem:


In rushing wind, in tongues ot flame
At Pentecost, to man He came,
God, the Holy Spirit.

To make His dwelling deep within
God's children, who are washed from sin,
By Jesus, God the Son.

He will lead us to Jesus' feet.
Jesus will take us on to meet
God our Righteous Father.

Jesus said, "Do not leave Jerusalem,
But wait for the gift My Father will send,
The gift you will inherit.
John baptised with water for all to see,
Soon you will be baptised by Me,
With the power of my Holy Spirit!
Into your life will flow my power,
Baptised with My Spirit and with My Fire.
Fire for My Kingdom, fire for My Word,
Fire till all the world has heard,
Fire, Holy Fire."

So the fire of God has burned with a flame,
That man can never extinguish again.
Fire, Holy Fire.
Fire that will light us deep within,
Fire that convicts us of all our sin,
Fire, Holy, Fire.
