St John the Evangelist Church, East Holme

 Our Parish Vision 


Our vision is to show God’s love and make Jesus known in our community. We seek to do this by growing as disciples of Christ, reaching out in the power of the Spirit to serve those in need and feeding on God’s word as we share in fellowship together. 

 During the Covid-19 pandemic some of our services and activities have had to be curtailed. We hope that this difficult time will soon pass but, in the meantime, please refer any questions to the Parish Office. 

Due to the easing of the Covid-19 guidance we are able to provide more services in our churches, please see our Weekly Newsletter in the News and Features page for all information. 

Our weekly YouTube services can and will in the near future, still be accessed by clicking on Youtube Wareham's Church of England Family or for the price of a local call the same service can be heard on the telephone by dialling 01202 078008.
