Located on the main A60 Mansfield Road approximately 2 miles north of Nottingham City Centre and adjacent to the Mapperley Park Clinic (NG5 2DL) the Church and Community Centre is situated in the north east corner of the churchyard. This Churchyard is surrounded on three sides by stone walls surmounted by iron railings. Its eastern boundary is formed by Mansfield Road with Church Drive to the south, Loscoe Road to the west and a children's playground (Pirates Park) to the north. The churchyard covers some 7294 square yards. The small part between the church and Church Drive is crowded but the main area now has tasteful groups of memorial stones moved together from other parts of the churchyard. Within the churchyard are Eleven War Commission Graves erected for men who served in the First World War. Burials in the church yard ceased many years ago.
There are three entrances to the churchyard, the north side of the building on Mansfield Road which is tarmacked and level, Church Drive with 3 steps near the gate,and Loscoe Road by a path which at times can get muddy.

God doesn't care... God doesn't care how old you are. God doesn't care where you are from. God doesn't care about your bank balance. God doesn't care who you voted for. God doesn't care about what you wear. God doesn't care about your criminal record. God doesn't want you to pretend about anything.
God doesn't care and neither do we. None of us are perfect. Everyone is welcomed no matter what is going on in your life. St John’s is where God meets normal people.
We give a warm welcome people of all ages and from all sorts of backgrounds, to those who wish to discover Jesus Christ for the first time, to those who want to grow further in their knowledge and service of him or to those visiting Nottingham for a short break.
We understand that coming to church for the first time can be a strange thing but our congregation come in all shapes and sizes and from all sorts of different backgrounds but we all have one thing in common... we were all once new to the church. If you are new and would like to have someone show you around, please speak to the Church Wardens or a Sidesperson who will gladly help you.
You can read more about what we believe and what we do from this website but the best way of finding out more is by joining us, as we worship God and give thanks for Jesus our Lord and Saviour, either at a quiet mid-week mass or to a Parish Mass on Sunday. We really would love to see you!
