The Lord calls us to do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God - Micah 6:8
St John’s with St Mary’s is a friendly Church of England community in the heart of Devizes where we seek to walk openly and honestly with others as we learn to grow in God’s love. We invite you to experience and celebrate God’s love with us through worship and fellowship.

At present, due to The coronavirus pandemic our two churches are both closed for Servces or Visitors until further notice
St John’s will be open during the November Lockdown for Private Prayer:
From 5-6 pm on Monday and Tuesday.
From 9-11 am on Wednesday and Friday.
Recognising that there may be people in the community who would welcome a quiet place for prayer and contemplation during these new restrictions, the churchwardens have supported the request from our curate, Gerry Lynch, and LLM in training Mark Harrison to open St John's for short periods four times a week. As required by the advice Alan Martin, the parish health and safety officer, has put together a Risk Assessment to cover this activity, which you can find on the parish website. Gerry and Mark will act as stewards for all the sessions and will ensure that the now familar hygiene protocols ie face coverings, hand sanitising, cleaning etc and social distancing requirements are followed. The decision to open St John's for private prayer is in line with the current CoE advice - individual prayer is still permitted under the government guidelines for the second lockdown.
