Welcome to St John's



    Welcome to St John the Evangelist, Old Trafford--an inclusive worshipping community in urban, diverse Manchester.

    On Sundays we worship at 8.30 in the chapel and at 10 in the nave. Join us too for Morning Prayer Mon-Thurs at 9 in the chapel beneath the bell tower. There is a vestry hour between 6-7 on Fridays if you want to enquire about weddings, baptisms, funerals or other services. 


    This Saturday (24th June), we are inviting people to Vote for Us, The lovely cartoon of Maya Angelou (by cartoonist Stanley Chow) advertises a 'Cabaret for Freedom' to raise awareness and funds for local refugees. In the 1960s Maya Angelou hosted such a cabaret to supoort the civil rights movement. Poets, musicians, dancers performed then and will again, reading Maya's poetry and their own, singing songs of freedom and entertaining people at St John's Church on October 14th in Black History Month. We need some money to help prepare for that night of entertainment. If you like the idea and live locally, vote for us at Trafford Town Hall, Talbot Road between 12 and 2 on Saturday 24th June.  No-one should be voiceless or citizenless. Maya overcame personal trauma to share her gifts and support others, Help us do the same.
