Concerts

St John’s Church has held fortnightly lunch-time concerts since 1975. Concerts are held on alternate Thursdays throughout most of the year with breaks at Christmas, Easter and the summer. Please check this calendar for the next few dates (and programmes, when available).

Light refreshments are available from 11.45am and the concert begins at 12.30pm. There is usually an interval and the concert finishes at around 1.45pm.

Admission is free but there is a collection on the way out to cover expenses. Please come and join us!

Service for Remembrance Sunday (livestreamed)
Nov 8 @ 10:15 am – 11:05 am

Today’s Remembrance Sunday service will be live-streamed from St John’s over Zoom (please email for details). It won’t be a Communion service and starts later so that we can incorporate the two minutes’ silence at 11 am. Because of the new restrictions, only those directly involved in the live-streaming will be in the church: it will not be open to the congregation.
