"My daughter Hannah and I, along with a few others from St John's are going to the Big Church Day Out and we’d love you to come with us!  Join us at Wiston House in West Sussex on 25th & 26th May with thousands of Christians from all over the country to worship and ‘celebrate all that is good’.  The worship will be led by:  Hillsong United, Casting Crowns, Matt Redman, Lion of Judah, Housefires, GuvnaB, Martin Smith and many more.
HOW DO I BOOK?  Follow the St John's group link (http://bcdo.group/2020/st-johns-woodbridge) or click here which will link you with our group.   You will then be taken to the group homepage where you can order your tickets. You will then need to create an account or login to an existing account if you have one. Your card will be charged a week or two before the event.  

GROUP DISCOUNT  -  The cheapest way to go to the Big Church Day Out is in a group; the price will keep dropping as our group grows.   Your payment will be taken when our group closes nearer the time and they have the lowest price for the St Johns Group.

We hope you will be able to join us!"   Ivan   (For more info please email or contact Ivan Fearn)


Noah Ark Replica at Ipswich Waterfront! 

Noahs ArkA huge replica of the Ark has been docked at the Ipswich Waterfront, with plans to stay for up to three months. The Ark is a museum in disguise, boasting an impressive four floors of exhibits, complete with a shop and café. Spanning all floors is a huge replica of the tree of life, found in the middle of the ship amidst the displays and sculptures. The exhibits showcase various biblical stories by using intricately carved wooden sculptures and interactive displays, and are sure to garner attention from even the youngest of inquisitive minds! Of course, there is enough detail and charm to suit older audiences too. 

As the world’s only sea-borne museum, the Ark offers a uniquely entertaining experience to anyone wishing to look at Biblical stories from a different perspective, and is a great way to engage children with the Bible.

Pupils from St Margaret’s Church Of England Voluntary Aided Primary School in Ipswich will be attending a service on the Ark next week (week commencing 27th November) which is due to be filmed by the BBC for a Christmas episode of Songs of Praise!

The ark is open seven days a week, for more information please click here.
