Welcome to St John's website. You can find plenty of information about the church, our services, and our activities here.
At the end of January 2023, our vicar, Canon Barrie Scott, left to take up a new position as Deputy Director of Education for Church Schools in the diocese.
During the interregnum (vacancy) the church will be run by a team of peoiple including our curate, church wardens and licensed readers. So you will still be able to contact us via the contacts here
The church of St John the Evangelist Perry Barr is a friendly, welcoming group of people, dedicated to spreading God's love through the Sacraments, community work and fellowship. Since 1833 the Parish Church has been a place where God is encountered in the beauty of holiness and in the sacramental and prayerful lives of those responding to God's call.
We have a wide range of activities, ranging from worship, Bible study and prayer groups, to social occasions, charity work and fundraising. Whether you are looking to explore your faith or get involved in helping others, you will find a warm welcome here at St John's. Everybody who comes here says "St John's is like a family".
As a parish church we are here for everyone in the parish. We can arrange Holy Communion at home as well as help with planning baptisms/christenings, weddings and funerals. We also have a bereavement friendship group and a thriving "Stay and Play" group called "The Jesse Tree" and a Youth Club which meets most Thursdays. Just check our calendar and other pages on the website for more details.
Come and find out more about us, about God and Faith, and be reminded that God loves you. We look forward to meeting you.
The St John's Family
