Welcome to the Church of St John The Evangelist, Burgess Hill
“We exist to worship God and in the name of Jesus Christ, to reach out and share with everyone, his life and his love”
On the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the Church of England has opened a Book of Condolence and Prayer for HRH, the Duke’s life. To sign it please go here
St John’s will be open for private prayer and to light candles between 11am and 2pm from Sunday 11th April until Saturday 17th April.
Dear Church Family,
We are delighted to be able to bring you some good news! With the permission of the PCC, we will be resuming services at St John’s from this coming Sunday, 14th March.
The current Government guidelines and restrictions mean that our services will be noticeably much shorter than usual and there will sadly be no choir. Also, during Holy Week and Easter many of the much-loved traditions will be absent but we are encouraged that at least we can be together in Church again.
The services will be as follows:
SUNDAYS 10am – Holy Communion (said)
Please book tickets on Ticket Source:
WEDNESDAYS 10.30am – Holy Communion (said)
You do not need to book in advance, however contact details will be taken at the door to comply with “Track and Trace”.
We are, as ever, very grateful to our visiting clergy without whose support and faithful commitment to St John’s none of this would be possible.
A number of people have asked about the Covid restrictions in the Church building (fewer people, one-way system, sanitising etc): these will be there for several weeks yet. The Government’s “roadmap” states that the earliest that any relaxation could be made is 21st June.
We understand that many of you will still be unable to attend Church and would discourage you from doing so if you are clinically extremely vulnerable. However, there is still the possibility to watch the livestreamed services from Henfield which Fr Paul Doick has decided to continue for the foreseeable future.
Links can be found on their website https://henfield.org or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/St.Peter.Henfield/videos (you can still watch even if you are not a member of Facebook).
We will provide updates on our website https://www.stjohnschurchbh.org.uk and our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stjohnBH and by email if we have any further news and will of course be reviewing the situation regularly.
Stay safe & God Bless.
Colin & Liz
