We are an Eco and Animal Friendly Medieval Church surrounded by beautiful countryside on the edge of Epping.
Our gates are always open and everyone is welcome to enjoy our Churchyard,
including our wildflower labyrinth.
We are a very sociable Church so look out for our various social activities!
Our Service starts at 11.10am(ish) on Sundays.
We have Communion every Sunday apart from on the 4th Sunday of the month when we have a more informal Family Service.
Sunday School meet at 10.15am before the Service on the 4th Sunday.
You are all so welcome to join us!
On the second and fourth Monday afternoons in St John's, Epping between 3.00 and 4.30 pm there is a chance to paint with watercolours, without any stress or tension, but to paint what you want to paint.
Some painting equipment is provided but it is preferable if you bring your own: water colour paper, a tin of water colour paints and a few brushes.
If you are so inclined I will be demonstrating in each session a watercolour.Painting and explaining my technique.
If you attend regularly you will find we would have covered an entire painting course: washes, lifting out, wet on wet, wet on dry, wet against wet, colour theory, composition, scale and proportion in the genre’s of landscape and seascape in particular.
Above all though it can be a time of personal ‘letting go’ and contemplation.
