Thank you to all of you who attended our events and heritage days in June. The feedback we received about your visit and the tours was very much appreciated and we are very happy that you got to know more about our historic church and beautiful building.

We were so pleased to receive donated flowers from the recent wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Westminster from their private garden and all our visitors have commented on the fragrance and beauty of them in our church.

During recent weeks, we have been working hard to showcase our new display of Roman and Civil war tiles so come and see us to view these special artefacts.

Forthcoming events and music at St John’s


The Vikings return on Saturday the 13th July

We’ll pitch camp in the former north churchyard. The Chapter House will be open during the afternoon; a delight for people with an interest in archaeology or architecture, or just to have a look inside a vaulted room that is normally locked.
