Our style of worship incorporates traditional and modern praise, with something for everyone.
We use the CH 4 Hymn Book, Mission Praise and Junior Praise. We regularly learn new worship songs. Services can be quite lively with our small Praise Band, especially at Christmas, Easter and Family Services. After the 11.30 am service at Johnshaven we gather in the church hall for tea/coffee and relaxed fellowship where everyone is welcome.
We are hoping to start a Sunday School and Youth Church soon. Children welcome to all our services.
On the last Sunday in the month after the morning service, we have a time of fellowship over a light refreshment, where everyone is welcome.
In the "darkness" and the night, in the "wilderness" and the seas that our lives are, Jesus is the "boat" the carries us through...
Our Churches History:
Johnshaven Church was first opened on Sunday, November 4, 1860 as the place of worship for the United Presbyterian Church, it was a union of the Secession Church and the Relief Church, both earlier breakaways from the Church of Scotland, to form the United Presbyterian Church, which accounted for the building of the church in 1860.
Later it became the place of worship for the United Free Church when the U.P. Church and the Free Church merged at the start of the 20th century.
It was not until 1947, however, when, some years after the United Free Church rejoined the Church of Scotland, that the congregation of the Parish of Benholm started to meet in the Castle Street church, by then known as St John’s Church.
Today Johshaven Church is part of the Mearns Coastal Parish, Church of Scotland.
