A warm welcome awaits you here at St. John’s a parish worshiping within the Catholic tradition of the Church of England.
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 throu the Church Yard. Wheelchair uses are advised to use the Mansfield Road entrance.
Access for Disabled People
Worshipers with mobility needs are most welcome at St John’s. Wheelchair access is via the gate on Mansfield Road from where a level path takes you to the main entrance. Stewards are on duty at all the main services should assistance be required. Toilets for the disabled are provided as well as a lift for access to the first floor. A sound system is used in the main services along with a loop.
There are regular services every week with others added on special occasions, such as Christmas, Holy Week and Easter (details on the Diary Page). In our services lay people have an active part, as servers, readers, and intercessors. We believe that this presents the whole Body of Christ celebrating together
