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

HOLY WEEK AND EASTER

Maundy Thursday 7pm: Mass and Watch until Midnight.

Good Friday 2pm: The Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion.

Good Friday 7pm: The Passion according to St John by Bob Chilcott (online only on St John the Divine, Kennington YouTube channel).

Holy Saturday, 7pm: The Easter Vigil (followed by fireworks).

Easter Day 10.30am and 12 noon: Mass

Holy Week services will be available on facebook and youtube.

Daily mass will return to 12.15pm from Easter Monday, except Saturday which is the Vigil Mass at 6pm.

As the Government’s Road Map is currently set out, the approach of summer gives us some hope of being able to gather in a manner to which we are accustomed, so from the end of June we look forward to a party or two! We envisage several events over the summer and around Our Lady’s Birthday (8th September) to bring us all back together again after such a time apart. We hope that Friends who are living away will also be able to join us some time over the summer or early autumn, as the current restrictions will prevent our May gathering.

In the meantime, this comes with prayers and good wishes, as we face towards Jerusalem with Our Lord, and as we pray for the renewal of the Church and our world.

With love and peace,

Father Mark
