Building, clergy and style of worship

Part of the Diocese of Guildford, the first vicar was appointed in 1981, and the church met in local schools before moving into the church centre, designed by Robert Potter, in 1988. The building is part of Goldsworth Park Centre, adjacent to its shops and health centre.

The church describes itself as "a community-focused evangelical church, with a modern building".[1]

A2 Youth & Community Centre

The church sponsored and opened this building adjacent to the church in 2008, providing youth facilities and venues for local community and social events. The church's internet presence operates as a wider community website which has pages for its coffee shop, sponsored centre and initiatives.


Goldsworth Park is a parish of the Church of England created to serve the Goldsworth Park Estate: diverse housing, parks, gardens and roads laid out on a sparsely populated greenfield area. This area is bounded by St John's, Woking to the south and Knaphill and Horsell in northerly directions. In terms of population it equates to the area of Goldworth West, a ward that qualifies for two councillors plus a part of Goldsworth East.[2][3]
