St John's Church, Bourne End

Welcome to our church. Please feel free to wander around this site and discover more about our building, our history, our worship and our involvement in village life.

We hope you enjoy your virtual visit and will come to see us in the real world one day. For a map of where we are please click here.

The church is, of course, open to all from 10 am on a Sunday morning until around 12.30. Please join us for worship and coffee and biscuits afterwards. On the final Friday of each month we open our doors for an informal coffee morning when we serve tea, coffee, freshly baked scones and cakes.

If you would like to visit the church, please contact one of the churchwardens and we will arrange to open the church for you. Whether for private prayer and reflection or to visit this beautiful historic monument, you are most welcome.

NEW VICAR

We are very pleased to be able to announce that Rev. Rebecca Fardell has been appointed as the new Vicar for Sunnyside and Bourne End Churches. We all felt at interview that Rebecca is exactly the right person to fulfil the role set out in our parish profiles and that God has sent her to us to lead us forward both as a church and as individuals in our Christian journeys. We believe she will nurture, encourage, challenge and inspire us all. When offered the post, she was delighted and accepted immediately.  We look forward to welcoming her into our two church families.

 A message from our new Vicar – Rev Rebecca Fardell

  'I am currently the assistant curate of the Itchen Valley Parish, four villages east of Winchester. Before ordination, I was a teacher and museum curator; history and museums remain passions of mine. I am the devoted aunt of two beautiful nieces and three gorgeous godchildren (aged 16 years - 4 months) who all bring me much joy.

 I am excited about what God will do in us, through us and for us at Sunnyside and Bourne End and am thanking Him for the privilege and joy of coming to serve as your new vicar.'

 Please continue to pray for Rebecca as she prepares to join us in May and for the churches she will be leaving. Her service of Institution will be on Wednesday May 17th at Sunnyside.

 

We are here every Sunday at 10:30* - Why not join us!

* And every Second Sunday at 6:00pm! And every 2nd Wednesday for our Pot Luck Lunch!

And the last Friday of each month for Coffee & Cakes!
