About Us

We are committed to serving the community of Radlett, pastorally and as ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Whether bringing folk together in worship or ministering to people in need at the key points of their lives -in joy or in sorrow - we seek "to be a loving community, inspired by the Holy Spirit, founded in worship and prayer, proclaiming Jesus Christ in word and deed".

Our church provides a fairly comprehensive range of  ACTIVITIES for adults, young people and children of all ages, most of which are run by volunteers from among the congregation - ask for details of our men's group, activities for over 55s, children and youth etc

We welcome inquiries about  BAPTISMS, WEDDINGS, FUNERALS or other pastoral occasions, and will do our best to help and look after you at these and other key times in people's lives.

We have two spacious and well equipped  CHURCH HALLS which are available for hire for private functions or coomunity use.

At its heart, the church is not in fact a building but a body of people who share in the faith and service of God,  and we rejoice in having buildings to meet and worship in, which are both beautiful and practically suited to our needs. We do invite you to join us in worship and/or service, and ask that you pray for us and for the work we seek to do in the community. 

WORKING TOGETHER                                                                         

We work in collaboration with our sister churches in the Anglican team of Aldenham, Radlett and Shenley, and also with those of other denominations locally, Radlett United Free Church and St Anthony's RC Church, in Churches Together in Radlett and Aldenham. We also meet regularly with the Jewish congregations in Radlett under the auspices of the CCJ (Council of Christians and Jews)

WHERE DOES OUR INCOME COME FROM? 
Like most parish churches today, Christ Church and St John's Parish is maintained by the voluntary support of its members. Their generosity is such that over and above maintaining the Church and other buildings and paying for the clergy ministry we have been able in recent years to be net contributors to the work of St Albans Diocese to the tune of over £50,000 p.a. and also to give some £15 -20,000 a year to charity and mission bodies at Home and Overseas.  Further support is always welcome and will enable us to do more locally and further afield.

CONFIRMATION 

As and when needed we prepare adults for confirmation by the Bishop and young people's confirmation course. We also run annual ALPHA courses every autumn, in conjunction with Aldenham and Shenley, for anyone interested in exploring the Christian faith more deeply.
