St John’s and St Andrew’s –

Churches in Parks and Walcot,

Swindon, Wiltshire


We are two Christian churches in Parks and Walcot. Our goal is to show the light of Jesus’ love to everyone in the area. This means we can play a part in realising what Jesus called the “kingdom of God” by bringing people into communities with Jesus Christ at the centre.


We believe that Christian life is lived in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and we aim to follow the way that Jesus taught.


We meet every week on a Sunday to learn more and to worship the one true God.


We would love to meet you and everyone is welcome to the services or just pop in and see us.
