Sunday Meetings

We are very excited to be holding our morning services in the church building together with singing - please click or tap here for more details on how we are managing this. 

The service will also be broadcast on Zoom at the same time so if you are unable to join us in person and would like to join us on Zoom instead please email and we will pass on a Zoom link for the next Sunday's service.

If you are unable to attend in person or via Zoom we also post recordings of the reading, talks and prayers, along with some worship song links that may be helpful. Please tap or click here to go to our 'Sundays at Home at St John's' page.

Thank you. 


St John's Church, 2 St John's Road, Penge, London SE20 7EQ

Service Times

Sunday 10.30 am

Types of Service

The first Sunday of the month is Family Communion and we have an All Age service on the fourth Sunday of the month.

All other services are Morning Worship where the focus is on bible teaching.

Sunday School (4-11 year olds)

On a Family Communion Sunday the children start the service in church so they are able to come to the Lord's Table with their families. For Morning Worship Sundays they are invited to join their groups before the service starts and will stay out for the whole time. For All Age services they will stay in church with the church family.

Youth (11+)

Young people aged 11+ are expected to worship and serve as adults in the main congregation and to meet later on Sundays for bible study and prayer.

Travel - rail and bus

There are two railway stations in the parish, Penge West and Penge East (see map).  Penge West is on the southbound route of the London Overground (the East London Line) which is connected to the London Underground via London Bridge and Canada Water. 

Penge East station is a 16 minute journey from London Victoria on the Orpington line.

There is a bus stop close to St John's church building on Penge High Street.

If you the live in the parish the best way to get to church is to walk!


Parking in the church grounds is currently very limited but there is street parking in St John's Road. St John's Road has parking restrictions mid-week but is unrestricted during the weekend.
