Coming to Church

You may have been thinking about coming to church for some time.

We have written this page to try to make things easier for you to find out more.

We promise to make you welcome but not to put you under any pressure.

You are free to come, have a look, and if you prefer not to come back!

If, on the other hand, you would like to get more involved, there are plenty of opportunities to use your talents.

Again, no pressure — promise!


St John's church in the parish of Deepcar and Stocksbridge takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.
We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at
