Welcome to our website

View of church from Station Road

St John’s is the Church of England Parish Church for the parish of Greenhill, which is the town centre area of Harrow. Our Parochial Church Council is a registered charity.

Our purpose is to worship God and grow disciples of Jesus who share God’s love in the world. For all our worship and other activities, see our Worship and Activities page.

There are several saints called John. Our patron saint is St John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Jesus. See, for example, Matthew, Chapter 3.

Peter Polkinghorne and Cath Still were re-appointed as churchwardens, and Claire Cook and Pat Roney, who were retiring by rotation from the Parochial Church Council, were both re-appointed.

The Victoria Hall

The Victoria Hall, which is next to the church in Sheepcote Road, offers rooms for hire. It is run separately from the church, so please contact the hall direct on its website or by telephone (020 3093 0710).

Food bank

We collect for Harrow Foodbank: You are welcome to make donations of suitable food when the church is open (there is also a collection point at the Tesco Superstore on the corner of Station Road and Hindes Road). Please note that we do not distribute food: this is done by Harrow Foodbank in various nearby places, to people who have obtained Foodbank vouchers: see the Harrow Foodbank website.
