We are a United Reformed and Methodist Church. Our minister is the  Reverend Stella Hayton and we are part of the South Pembrokeshire Pastorate which in addition to St Johns includes Tabernacle Pembroke and Chapels at Reynalton and Templeton. Stella joined us in late July 2018 and was formally Inducted at a special service on 1st September 2018. We are also pleased that her husband, John, a non-stipendiary minister, is part of the ministry team.

In 2018 we celebrated 150 years of Christian Witness in our church. A number of special events were held including a revival of our Daffodil Festival over the St Davids day week. In May we had an Exhibition showing the History of the church then from end of July through to third week of August we hosted a display of the Knitted Bible. The year ended with our extensive and original Christmas Tree Festival and a marvelous performance of Handel's Messiah with a made up choir and orchestra.  

We have a lovely and bustling Church, and we enjoy our strong involvement in the small community of Tenby. Through the summer months we host concerts by various choirs and performers. We have a large church hall where Art and Craft Groups meet and occasional exhibitions are held. In March 2020 our 140 year old pipe organ received a major clean and refurbishment, it is in use most Sundays subject to the availability of organists. As an alternative we have a small music group who play for the service.

St Johns makes an excellent venue for weddings and baptisms. We love seeing new people enjoying our church and letting this special place become a memorable part of your celebrations. Please get in touch to find out more about arranging an event at St Johns.

To find out what is going on read our newsletter or come join us. On certain Mondays between 2pm and 4pm our craft group meet in the hall for a chat and work on various crafts, suitably distanced apart of course.

We look forward to meeting you.
