Welcome to St John’s, Grainger Street

st johns outsideSt John’s is a vibrant, friendly church, in the catholic tradition of the Church of England, with a daily Eucharist and a high standard of choral liturgy maintained by its excellent choir.

Concerts and other events add to the cultural repertoire, and the church is set in pleasant and attractive gardens, enjoyed by the local community and visitors to the city alike. See the calendar for details of all upcoming services, events and activities at St John’s.

The Church is normally open every day from 8.30am and welcomes visitors from all over the world. Leaflets are available in English, Dutch, French, German, Greek,  Italian, Mandarin, Polish, Swedish and Spanish.

Development Project Update

We have now been successful in our second round application to the Heritage Lottery Fund, and have been awarded a grant to carry out nearly £200,000 of urgent conservation repairs to this important Grade 1 listed medieval church.

In addition to the capital works, we will also be delivering a programme of heritage activities to increase audience numbers and visitor engagement.

The building works are more or less complete now and we have resumed normal opening times. See the ‘before and after’ shots below – or better still, pop in and have a look for yourself!








Please do continue to support our efforts to maintain and improve St John’s for future generations. Full details of the project, together with details of how to support us, can be found here.
