Welcome to St John’s Church Long Eaton. We are a family friendly Anglican church with a heart to serve the people of our community.
Together has been launched to help our church and our parish community in Long Eaton to stay connected during the current period. Watch this space for a whole range of materials.
Our Sunday services are now being held online: They are being live-streamed on our facebook page. Likewise each evening (Monday – Saturday) there is a reflection at 7pm. If you miss it, don’t worry you can catch up on our YouTube channel.
We have also put together some verses and prayers for this time.
Here are some resources for families.
Ezekiel – Together at Home for 29th March
Mothering Sunday – A family service at home

A video of this week’s Sunday Service is up on our YouTube channel. Don’t forget that you can subscribe to our channel and you’ll be notified every time we upload something.
Today we will be using our Facebook page to broadcast our Sunday service. We have also put some materials for families on our Together page.

Protocols and practice guidance for the Church of England’s Past Cases Review 2, (PCR2) have been published and are on the National Church of England Website.
Individual survivors who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process in the Diocese or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures regarding church related abuse are encouraged to make direct contact with the Safeguarding Team 01332 388678. However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with experience of abuse from within the church, a dedicated national helpline – 0800 80 20 20 – operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC, was set up in September 2019 and remains available.
Survivors and victims can use the helpline to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within the Church of England context; whether they are reporting issues relating to children, adults or seeking to whistle blow about poor safeguarding practice. Survivors were not invited to contribute to the 2007-2009 PCR and the Church has wanted to ensure a different, trauma informed approach is taken by PCR2. Listening to survivor voices has helped to shape how this review will be conducted.
