As always, it’s very good to see more visitors joining our services each week and showing such interest in the unique history of this beautiful building.

We would like to offer our thanks to those volunteers who gave up their weekend a few weeks ago to donate their personal time to clean around the Church and for those of you who kindly donated Easter eggs and the lovely flowers during April. This is much appreciated by everyone.

Historic/Heritage Tours & those special occasion bookings

For those of you who would like a tour around our Church, we are available to offer this to any visitor, however, if you would like to book a group or a school visit, we would be pleased to organise this for you in advance, so you are not disappointed if our dedicated guides are not available.

Our Church is also a beautiful venue for your wedding or christening or indeed any other special occasion, so why not contact us to discuss your personal requirements by emailing us at the following address: office@stjohnschester.uk or simply call in during our opening hours.
