St John’s was built in 1958 to service the new town of Corringham. It is a daughter church of St Mary’s. Built in a modern style it offers a space well suited for modern catholic worship. The hall that forms part of the church building is a well used local resource and its town centre location makes it ideal for occasional visits. We welcome anyone to any of our services and invite you to come in and pray with us whenever the church is open.
Clubs that use our building include a pre-school, martial arts, brownies group and a Darby & Joan Club. If you are interested in using this space then please see our hall hire page for contact details.
