What do a student, window cleaner, young mum and a retired firearms officer have in common?

They are all part of St John's Clayton and working out how to follow Jesus in everyday life and they've all found or deepened their faith through Alpha. Alpha now runs in every part of the global church, including the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and all mainline Protestant denominations. Our Summer Alpha will be running at St John's Clayton from 26th April to 8th July 2020. To find out more, please call 01274 880373 or email

The power of prayer in 2020

During Lent 2020 we'll be linking into the 24/7 prayer movement as we use the foundation of the Lord's Prayer to ask the question that Jesus' disciples asked him in Luke 11:1, "Lord, teach us how to pray." This eight week course looks at a range of themes on prayer, including intercession, listening and unanswered prayer.  You can find out more about the course here. If you're interested in joining the Prayer course please call 01274 880373 or email

What's in our DNA?

Loving God, the world and each other. Living life to the max by flourishing as individuals and as a community. Learning through constant curiosity, listening to each other and failing forward!   

We see the one God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) changing our lives - so we know he can change yours - whatever your background, situation or circumstances.

Winter Shelter @ St John's Clayton 2020

St John's Clayton is hosting 12 homeless men from the 27th January to the 3rd February as part of the city wide Inn Churches Winter Shelter project. We hosted a very successful Coffee and Cake Morning on the 18th January to raise funds for the Winter Shelter and have received donations of socks, hats, gloves, scarves and towels. Our fantastic team of volunteers will be providing a range of support over the week, from cooking breakfast to befriending.

What's your story?

Young people, young adults, and seniors were among eight people confirmed or baptised by the Bishop of Bradford, Toby Howarth. Local people, with loads of questions on a journey of faith in God - all with their story of life and faith. Whatever your faith story and whatever questions you have - St Johns is a place to travel further - together.
