Rev. Paul Ireton

Rev. Paula Mayer

A very warm welcome to this website which will let you know something of our life together and passion to serve Christ. Here at St John's we believe in sharing the call of God over every life. We believe that all who become His disciples are equipped and gifted by God to fulfil His mission, fuelled by the hope that comes from the bodily resurrection of Jesus and His sacrificial love. We have witnessed folk coming to Christ and starting their lives all over again. So why not dip your toes in our church life and find out for yourself! You'd be so welcome! Rev. Paul Ireton.

Paula: I have been associate priest at St John's since 2007. Before this appointment, I spent 14 years without a specific church attachment. During this time, I became very involved in two linked but distinct projects.

The Haven Torbay cares for the homeless, lonely and disadvantaged in Paignton.

Haven Peru helps to support deprived children in a small coastal town called Pimentel in northern Peru.

When I was invited to join the staff at St John's it was a delight to find that this open, outgoing church shared and supported my passion for these other two projects.
