Come and join one of our groups


There is something for everyone at St John's. We want to drive togetherness in the community, so there is plenty to interest everyone. Come and join us..

The Crochet and Knitting Group

This group was formed to teach the fine art of crochet and to enjoy a good friendly chat over tea and biscuits. All levels of skill are welcome, you may be a total novice, or perhaps you did learn to crochet once and have forgotten. Over the past year, many of our beginners have made beautiful blankets, scarves, hats, ‘string’ bags or just squares.

New members are always welcome – just come along with a ball of D.K wool and a 4mm (8) crochet hook and you will be amazed at what you can achieve. We meet on the last Thursday afternoon of the month from 2.00pm until 3.15pm in the Coffee Lounge in the Church Extension.

Holiday sessions are also run to teach children how to knit.

The Men's Thing

A group of people posing for a photoDescription generated with very high confidenceThis is a monthly meeting for men of all ages to meet and socialise. The meetings are held monthly in the Coffee lounge, and began almost ten years ago. Each meeting starts with tea or coffee, and usually there is an invited speaker to talk about a particular topic which is hopefully of interest to men. Past speakers have covered a very diverse range of subjects covering interests, hobbies, careers and local topics, with speakers coming from both within and outside the group.

Railways, art, bee keeping, vintage motor car racing, the history of lighting, wood turning, trekking up Kilimanjaro, the oil and chemical industries, fleet street photo-journalism, and also from our local beat bobby....

During the summer the group has arranged trips to various places of interest which have included Bletchley Park, Kew Steam Museum, a Buddhist Temple and the GWR at Didcot, just to name a few. 

Every man is welcome, whether a member of St John’s or not, if you would like to come along please speak to Anthony Pullen or a member of the Ministry Team.


Sunday Lunch Club

The Sunday Lunch club meets on the first Sunday of the month to enjoy a home cooked lunch, and to enjoy catching up with friends.

If so come and join good company at St. John’s Hall.  This event is for anyone who would otherwise be on their own.  The day starts at 12.30pm and ends at 5.30pm with full Christmas lunch and tea.  

Offers of HELP would be much appreciated - by looking after the guests; washing up, serving tea, or providing some entertainment.
