Ministry of Listening and Prayer

A ministry of listening and prayer is available in the  Memorial Chapel over coffee after the 9.30 Service on  Sundays. The listeners have been on a Christian Listening training course and all discussions are confidential. Other times can be arranged  by appointment.

Music at St. John's

Music at St John’s is a charitable company which seeks to promote music and the performing arts within the community of Boxmoor and Hemel Hempstead.  As well as promoting concerts, recitals and other musical events, including lunchtime concerts on Fridays during Spring/Summer and Autumn, it also organises educational events for schoolchildren, and seeks to help young people with some of the costs of their musical studies by means of a bursary scheme.
