St John’s Church Crowborough has a responsibility to promote the welfare and safety of all children, young persons and vulnerable adults.

The worship of Almighty God is at the heart of our life at St John’s.

All people are welcome to our fellowship and

invited to share our common life of worship and prayer. 


The Eucharist is celebrated twice every Sunday morning:

8.00 a.m. Low Mass - the service is according to the order of Holy Communion in the Book of Common Prayer 1662, with its beautiful and resonant language.

There is no singing or music and the service is about 30 minutes in length.

10.00 a.m. Parish Mass - The worship is formal yet highly accessible, using the contemporary

 language version of Common Worship. The Eucharist is at the heart of our life as a community at St John’s, holding us together in our diversity. There is an emphasis on ritual that is performed carefully but with a lightness of touch, creating time for reflection and allowing a sense of God’s presence. Our Anglo-Catholic tradition is reflected in the use of vestments and incense and a full team of servers within the context of traditional ceremonial.

11.30 a.m. - Family Service – this short service is aimed at families with younger children. There are prayers, two songs with keyboard accompaniment and a short, usually participative, talk. The service lasts about 30 minutes.


Generally Morning Prayer will be said at 8am and Evening Prayer at 5pm except on Mondays  

The Mass - there are regular weekday celebrations – see details on the weekly PEW sheet

School Worship takes place on Wednesdays during term-time at 9.00 a.m.

Holy Days

The feasts and Holy Days of the Christian year are observed at St John’s with special services. The details of these special services are always publicised well in advance. There are special services and events leading up to Easter – notably during Holy Week from Palm Sunday to Easter Day - and in the Advent and Christmas season; details of these are published on this website and on posters and on the church noticeboard and in the weekly pew-sheet.
