Events & Concerts

For details of our worship, including on-line services, please see our Worship Services page. We resumed our series of regular concerts in September 2021. There aren’t any other events taking place in the church at the moment, except that the Church is open from 12 noon to 3 pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays for our Welcome Centre (run jointly with Our Lady and St Thomas RC Church) and on Fridays from 12 noon to 2 pm for private prayer.

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!

(Please note that the Summer Concerts between Thursday 14 July and Thursday 15 September have been organised separately: (details here).)
