Life at St. John's

We believe the Christian faith to be relevant to men, women, young people and children of all ages and of all backgrounds.

At St. John's we have people from many walks of life and from different nationalities. We seek to extend a welcome to all, and to be a warm, caring and supportive church, sharing God's love.

St. John's Church is part of the Church of England, the Diocese of Chelmsford and the Deanery of Waltham Forest. We work closely with other churches and faiths in Leytonstone.
