About Us

David says:

"I have been a Methodist Minister for 36 years, served my first six years in Sri Lanka and then moved to the UK and received into full Connexion with the Methodist Church in Great Britain in 1992. As a British Methodist minister, I served in the following places: Yorkshire, Hampshire, Kent, Buckinghamshire, Essex, and the USA over the last 30 years and worked as an Officiating Chaplain for the British Army in Aldershot, Chaplain to the University students in Hull and to the Mayor of Rushmore Council. I have been serving as a member of the World Methodist Council and on the Evangelism and Higher Education Committees of the WMC since 2011.

"I'm a thinking evangelical Christian with strong tendencies in a mission-shaped ministry direction. I am passionate about building/developing a mission-based church ministry. I am keen to encourage others to seek and find the real meaning of being a Christian Disciple in a 21st-century world and the church to grow in making disciples."

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 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 (Churches Together in Potters Bar and the St Albans & Welwyn Methodist Circuit), and committing ourselves to social and environmental issues.


Our Minister, Revd David Jebb, is supported by the Leadership Team.
