St John's is very much a family church and known as being very welcoming. We have a good number of young families, but also a good number of members who are over 55. The Church has a robed choir, which has recently seen the addition of 11 young choristers. There is also a growing Toddler Praise Group which meets on Tuesdays and a growing Junior Church meets during part of the Sunday morning service, except on the 1st Sunday when there is an All-Age Communion Service.
Our new Team Vicar is Rev Canon Tony Bundock. He previously served as the Rector of Leeds in the Minster Church (St Peter's) and headed up the Leeds City Team of Churches. He has had plenty of experience of working in Teams, and we welcome him as the new Team Vicar at St. John's.
His Licensing service took place with Bishop Alan on Thursday 23 October and there was a great attendance from both the congregation of Lacey Green and surrounding churches, but also with a large number of visitors who travelled all the way from Leeds for the event. So please remember St. John's in your prayers at this time, and let us give thanks to God for this answer to our prayer.
