We are updating our website design to improve the experience on our site.

Welcome to St John the Divine Kennington

We are an Anglican (Church of England) parish in the catholic tradition. Our community is rich in its diversity and open to all, regardless of race, gender, sexuality or background.

Our main Parish Mass is at 10am on Sunday, and we hold services and events throughout the week.

We run several groups, for all ages, which help us to deepen our faith, support each other and build friendships within our community. 

Fr MarkMusic has been at the heart of worship for many years.  We have several choirs, involving over sixty children and thirty adults, who sing for our Masses and Evensongs.  Our music programme has been building links with St John's College Cambridge - our children's choirs attend a residential summer school there every July, and they help to fund organ scholarships at St John the Divine for our young people.

Our outreach programme helps us to reach out to our neighbours with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  We host a winter homeles shelter as part of the Robes Project, and we are actively engaged in London Citizens, working with other community organisations to build the Kingdom in our local area.

We have two church schools, Saint John the Divine Primary School and Saint Gabriel's College, who are an extremely important part of our community.

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful church!

Fr Mark Williams, Vicar

New COVID restrictions have been introduced preventing public worship in church, despite attempts by the Bishops to prevent this.  We are unlikely to be able to worship publicly until at least 2nd December.  

WEBCAST SERVICES

Please join us for online Mass, at 10am on Sundays, on youtube and facebook.  These webcasts are available at any time afterwards.

Compline is online on Tuesday evenings at 9pm, and can be viewed on facebook.

OPEN CHURCH

The church building is open for individual prayer, Monday to Friday, 3-6pm.  Please note there will not be any services for the time being. The toilets will be out of use so make sure you go before you come! The church has been arranged as a lovely open space with a limited amount of seating spaced out at at least two metres. There are two hand sanitiser dispensers at the main door. We look forward to welcoming people.
