Welcome to St John's Church, Belmont
St John’s is a joint Church of England and Methodist Church, and is the parish church for Belmont in the London Borough of Sutton.
With a church roll of about 100, and a regular worshipping congregation of around 60 each week in normal times, St John’s is a friendly church which seeks to welcome all.
Please see our church services page for details of worship. We're pleased that from 25 April we are holding live services in church each Sunday.
We mourn the loss of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, and give thanks to God for his extraordinary life of dedicated service.
Our new vicar
We have welcomed the Reverend Bethany Lewis, who was licensed on 13 April, and look forward to her ministry at St John's. She will be with us for half of her time and for the remainder will continue as team vicar with the Cheam Team Ministry.
See our church services page for details of the current position.
If you've passed St John's recently you may have seen that the scaffolding which has covered much of the church since before Christmas is being taken down. It was needed for our recent work programme to renovate the church and hall roofs to make them weather- and water-tight again, and to restore fully the church's great west window, which had been behind internal scaffolding for five years or so since a piece of masonry fell. Our contractors have been Pierra Ltd. and their work is now almost finished.
We've been able to fund all this thanks to many generous donations, some legacies, sustained fund-raising and three substantial grants we've received in the last few months from Viridor Credits, the National Churches Trust and the Garfield Weston Foundation. We're grateful for all this support and we look forward to the completion of the work shortly.
