St Johns Continuing Church
The Church of England Continuing, of which we are a small congregation, was formed in 1994.
We believe that the Bible is as vital and relevant today as ever and must not be explained away but rather applied to ourselves and to this needy world.
Our basis of faith is the 39 Articles of Religion which dates back to the 16th Century when God graciously brought England out of the Dark Ages.
Our denomination website is www.cofec.org where there are resources which will be very profitable to read, especially the early editions of "The Journal" which explain why the Church of England Continuing was formed.

Our Minister, Rev Peter Ratcliff , was also Editor of English Churchman newspaper from 2005 to January 2021. There is an archive of these editions at yelluk.wixsite.com/my-site-22799
We also offer some short answers to a variety of frequently asked questions at Main | My Site 26002 (yelluk.wixsite.com)
For those who are not Christians or are not sure of their salvation we highly recommend attending church services where you will hear preaching. Being among keen Christians, despite our many failings, will prove to be far more helpful than endless searching around online. If you are not living near Wimbledon, we may be able to recommend a church near you.
While "the church is the people" and we worship God all day every day, the heart of our lives is the Lord's Day (Sunday) when we meet together morning and evening because Jesus says, "Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them". Therefore we believe in reverent worship.
Lord's Day (Sunday) morning services are at 11 am at William Morris House, 267 The Broadway, Wimbledon SW19 1SD . We are preaching through the GOSPEL OF JOHN.
All very welcome.
The Evening service at 6.30pm is at William Morris House, 267 The Broadway. Wimbledon SW19 1SD. The evening service is in the Ground Floor room which has step free access from street level. The morning service is upstairs. Preaching is currently on: "THE BOOK OF REVELATION".
Our main midweek meeting is
usually on Wednesdays, usually at 4.45pm -
Currently this is a short form of Evening Prayer with preaching through THE BOOK OF THE LAMENTATIONS OF JEREMIAH. Like all the Bible, this is extremely relevant to today.
All are very welcome.
Meeting the community - from time to time, currently on Friday evenings, we preach outdoors in the centre of Wimbledon. It is a privilege and joy to meet all sorts of amazing people, to talk together about what is really important to you, and especially to explain the amazing things that God does for those who turn to him.
Many of us join an international prayer meeting online on Mondays from 7pm to 8.30pm which is led by friends at the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing).
There is also a monthly Church of England (Continuing) prayer meeting.
Services are also usually held on Good Friday and 25th December.
Contact us for details of all these.
We post our sermons online and usually broadcast services on Youtube and Facebook. This helps those who genuinely cannot get out and for those searching and who may be shy to come in. While this has been very useful during the Coronavirus outbreak, we do not believe in "cyber church".
We should meet together in local churches, not hop around the world online! We are happy to suggest a church near you.
