Community Life


St John's Stoke has a vision to be at the heart of the community and to be a support and blessing to those who live around us. We are involved in a variety of different projects which support the elderly, the young and those who may be struggling and need a bit of extra help. 

 

Outlook Lunch

A lunch for the Senior Citizens - 1st Wednesday of the month 12.30pm - cost just £3.50 per person

Free lifts (contact Janet Durrant via the office 01483 574562)

There is a hearty lunch, the chance to make new friends and a short talk, songs and prayer. We look forward to welcoming you.

 

Day Of Action

Each year as a church we try to be involved in a community day of action, where we work alongside residents and community support officers and safety wardens to make a difference in our local the community. Undertaking projects from DIY and Gardening, to setting up play areas and community gardening clubs, we hope to share the love of God in tangible and practical ways.

St John's was thrilled to be asked to partner with local Housing Association 'Homegroup' in some activities in the parish.

 Recently we helped out with a fun day in Langley Close, running craft activites & a smoothie bike (you have to see it to believe it!)  The day was run by Homegroup to re-launch the Little Shrubs gardening club and revitalise the involvement within the community.  The mayor came to visit & see what was going on, awarding a prize to the hardest working young person of the day.  

St John's was really pleased to build friendships & links with the residents and we look forward to continuing this.

The Besom Project

St John’s Stoke has chosen to support and be involved with the Besom Project. Besom is a bridge that helps people/volunteers to give their time or high quality material things onto people who have become known to a variety of community contacts who are in need of some help. The aim of the Besom project is to sweep away poverty in the local community and St John’s Stoke has sent a number of groups to work on projects and provide support to people in need of a helping hand in Guildford. Our Besom coordinator is Pete Turner who can be contacted via the church office.
