ST. JOHN'S CHURCH CARRINGTON
AN INCLUSIVE, ANGLO-CATHOLIC CHURCH JUST OFF THE CENTRE OF NOTTINGHAM
We are a Church of England church, sharing the love of Jesus Christ for all people.
We worship in the Anglo-Catholic tradition: our central act as a Church is to gather
We are part of Inclusive Church and celebrate and affirm every person.
We believe we are all made in God's image and are all equally loved by God. We seek to be a church that affirms every person and is welcoming of both human experience and human diversity.
You are very welcome to join us!

WE ARE OPEN FOR SUNDAY WORSHIP
Following the Governments lifting of all Covid legal restrictions on the 19th July 2021, the PCC has agreed to adopt a staged approach to making changes to the arrangement for our:
10am Eucharist on Sundays
We have reduced our social distancing restrictions to '1 metre plus' and currently provide “covid space” cards to place on seats around you. Cards are available at the entrance and are offered to attendees by the stewards. We also retain the use of face coverings for the time being.
We please to say that we have been able to restart serving tea and coffee after the service. This organised in a way that enables us to maintain social distancing. We have also resumed congregational singing with masks on.
We recognise many people will not wish to return immediately: that is absolutely fine! We will continue
to live stream services through our You Tube Channel and meet on Zoom for coffee.
For those of you who would like to return, go to our Returning to Church page which is designed to give you more information about the health and safety precautions we are taking and how we can all minimise the risk.
The Safety Group, which advises the PCC (church council), has thought long and hard about the new habits that we need to adopt in order to keep each other safe. The PCC has put in place a set of policies and procedures to prevent the virus entering the building, and to minimise the risk of it spreading in the building.
We also continue to serve our community. If you or someone you know is in need of a phone call, shopping or other help, please call us and we will to do what we can to support you.

Ministry team, Churchwardens & the community of St. John’s
Worshipping together is at the heart of what we do: in our prayer and in our lives we live our Eucharistic mission of 'going in peace to love and serve the Lord.'
We would love to chat to you about baptisms and weddings and are here to support you in times of bereavement.
We are here to serve the people of Mapperley, Carrington, Sherwood and the wider city. One of the main ways we do this is through our community centre which is available for hirers both corporate and personal.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
