About Us

St John's Methodist Church, Potters Bar is a registered charity (number 1130633)

St. John’s Methodist Church, Potters Bar is part of the Methodist Church in Great Britain. You can find more about our Christian values, beliefs and connections from www.methodist.org.uk. Our church primarily serves people from Potters Bar but does have a small number of members who travel from neighbouring towns.


We are a diverse group of people, working together to live out the Christian faith, and share the good news of Jesus Christ in our community. 


We aim to do this by:

  • Worshipping God in a variety of ways, including formal worship such as Morning Prayer and Holy Communion, and less-formal worship for all ages with contemporary music and songs. We enjoy being open to new styles of worship.

  • Meeting in small groups for friendship, conversation, prayer, and ministry, often centred on the Bible.

  • Nurturing the ministry and spirituality of everyone who has contact with St. John’s.

  • Being a supportive, caring and open community, with a strong commitment to safeguarding vulnerable adults, children and young people. 

  • Valuing the unique identity and contribution of every person, whatever their age, ethnic background, gender, or ability/disability.

  • Taking seriously our responsibilities as part of a local, national and global community, including participation with local Churches (www.ctpb.org.uk and www.midhertsmethodists.org.uk), and committing ourselves to social and environmental issues.


Our Minister, Rev Ali Facey, who exercised her ministry in Birmingham and then in Chile before coming to us, is supported by the Leadership Team.
