As Government guidance to limit contagion of coronavirus has been changed (see this link for general guidance and this link for places of worship), church services cannot be held in the Warwick Road church building from November 5th for a month (or more). It is possible that the church will be opened for private prayer and contemplation on Sunday and/or Wednesday. Government advice is that you limit your social interaction in these venues to your own household and up to one other, wherever possible. Strict adherence to social distancing is strongly advised: a distance of 2 metres should be kept from people you do not live with wherever possible and face coverings must be worn.
The 10 am Warwick Road and Knights' Meadow services will be online (via YouTube and Zoom respectively), and the 6 pm services are online via YouTube too.
We also offer a Wednesday midday Bible Study via YouTube.
We will say more as our confidence in doing safe services increases, and further plans for other groups will continue in development.
It remains the case that the 10 am church services at Warwick Road and Knights' Meadow and activities – including Small Groups - are no longer meeting physically. Many groups and services are now using videoconferencing.
For a recording of our first streamed service from Andrew's study on Matthew 6:25-34,
Jesus' command, "Do Not Worry", follow this link and skip to 12 mins 50 secs into the video.
The service lasts 34 minutes.

We’re a lively, loving church made up of family-style communities covering all ages, from babies to folk in their nineties and everything in between! Everyone is welcome and it’s an easy place to be and to belong.
What’s the best thing about St John’s?
It’s a great place to explore life and faith together in an amazing variety of ways. You’ll find people from all walks of life - employed and not employed; single, married, divorced. Some have kids, some are retired. We have fun together, see life as an adventure, work hard at caring for each other and do our best to make a positive difference in Kenilworth and the wider world. We hope you’d find us pretty normal!
What kind of Church are you?
We’re part of the Church of England and relate warmly to other local churches under the banner of ‘Love Kenilworth’. Whilst many of us gather at our Warwick Road site, we also have a sister church (Knights Meadow) which meets at Kenilworth School. Some of our communities have a more traditional feel, others include more informal styles of worship. We want to listen to what God is saying today, through the Bible and in other ways, and be open to the Holy Spirit to change us and the world around us.
What if I’m coming with kids?
We’re a rich mixture of children, youth and adults with dedicated teams to help young and old grow together in becoming like Jesus, making disciples and bringing real change. Our main services include special groups for children and youth most weeks and our Staff Team includes a Youth Worker.
