News

Opening of Christ Church for private prayer and worship has been reviewed regularly during the pandemic.

Christ Church is now open again for services at 10.30am on Sundays and Wednesdays, and for personal prayer on Wednesdays before the service.

Remember - God is everywhere, not just in church.

The other churches in our Aldenham, Radlett & Shenley Team Ministry are streaming services and providing podcasts and reflections. Details are available on the pew leaflets for St John the Baptist Aldenham and St Martin’s Shenley, posted on the website for Christ Church & St John’s https://www.christchurchstjohns.org.uk/.

The Church Office is open on weekday mornings.

Good news!! A new Vicar has been appointed

We are pleased to announce that the Revd Oliver Blease, Assistant Curate of St Bartholomew & All Saints Church, Royal Wootton Bassett, has been appointed Team Vicar in the Aldenham, Radlett and Shenley Team with special responsibility for Christ Church and St John’s, Radlett.

This is subject to the completion of legal formalities and when those matters have been completed we will be able to announce the date of the Licensing.

Please remember Oliver and his wife Mariama in your prayers as they prepare for their move, and also for the whole of Christ Church and St John's as we prepare to welcome them to Radlett to lead our church family, our worship and our future.

And now for some sadder news (for us):

It was announced last week that the Revd Daniel McCarthy (Team Rector of Aldenham, Radlett and Shenley) will be moving in June with the family to support his wife Ali in her new role as a stipendiary curate at Holy Trinity Church, Jesmond, in the Diocese of Newcastle.

Please pray for Daniel, Ali and the children (Ben, Caed and Calla) and the church family of St Martin’s Church, Shenley - further details here inc how to contribute to Dan's leaving fund
