During the current emergency, all of our public worship has been cancelled. The church is now also closed even for personal prayer.
Welcome to our Events and Concerts area. Here, you can find out about what’s happening at St. John’s.
If you are looking for information on our worship, please visit our Worship Services area, where you can find our service times, styles, and locations. Any variations from the regular pattern appear on this page.
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!
Messy Church is church for all ages with a difference. Join us for crafts, songs, stories, food, and to explore the Christian faith together! Messy Church is a free event, but donations are welcome. We meet on the last Sunday of every month except August and December.
We have cancelled Evensong tonight to make room for preparations for our Mystery of Godliness event
