Churches Together in Godalming & District
CTIGD is the umbrella ecumenical organisation for the Godalming area and most of the local churches are represented. Churches Together brings together Christians from a variety of denominations in a range of events and activities through the year.
Farncombe Day Centre
Based in the Victorian former school building next to the church, the Day Centre is run by Age Concern Godalming and provides services and activities for older people in the area. Many of our congregation have worked for or volunteered at the Centre.
Farncombe Infants School
We work very closely with the Infants School in Grays Road. Farncombe Infants is a Voluntary Aided Church School and as well as leading assemblies and organising Church Club (for which see the Groups page) we welcome the children to the church for their Palm Service, Leavers’ Service, Harvest and Christmas Production as well as just to look around the building.
Farncombe Music Club
Farncombe Music Club is run by Julian Lewry and exists to promote live music in the village. FMC brings a variety of artists to the church through the year, enjoying the unique surroundings of the church building and its fantastic acoustic.
The Trinity Trust Team
TTT is the local Christian youth work charity, funded and supported by many of the churches in the area. The Team provides assemblies and groups in local schools, youth services for churches themselves, and mentoring and outreach in the local community.
St Edmunds Roman Catholic Parish
Since 1974, no less, we have been welcoming our brothers and sisters from the local Roman Catholic congregation to St John’s for their Sunday morning Mass. In 2014 we celebrated this forty-year arrangement with a service of Evensong & Benediction involving both churches. There are often joint Anglican-Roman Catholic weddings through the year. Sometimes fitting in the Mass at 8.45am between the two Anglican services at 8am and 10am is a bit challenging – but we see no reason why our friendship should not last another forty years and more!
