St. John's Church

Living stones, loving God, serving others

Who's Who


Our church is served by the Incumbent (Parish Priest) who has responsibility to and for the people of God in our parish of Higham with Merston, not just those who attend church. To help him in his duty of care and the administration of services, he is assisted by a body of church members who work together to promote our mission of being living stones, loving God, serving others.
