After the holidays when we were removing our decorations, it was wonderful to discover that we had an increase in messages left on our Christmas prayer tree. In light of this, we would like to mention that visitors are still welcome to leave prayers, light a candle and sit in quiet contemplation in our peaceful Lady Chapel.

Your prayers will be ‘offered up’ at our Wednesday service and then stored to be used as an important element of the Easter Vigil held on Holy Saturday.

What’s on during the next few months:

The St John’s Festival Orchestra will perform three concerts in the Church, the first in late April.

The ‘Unknown Vikings” will be returning again this year and pitching their camp outside St John’s. Their first scheduled visit is the 9th March followed by the 14th April, and there are nine visits in all.

This year, we will be conducting separate guided talks on both the fourteenth-century fresco and the stones in the north aisle
during the summer months.

Our popular Wednesday@ One recitals will resume at the same time.

We look forward to seeing you where you can take time to look around the splendid architecture within the walls of this Grade 1 listed building.

During your visit, feel free to look around our gift shop and enjoy a warming cuppa and cake from our cosy and friendly cafe!
