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. 

    From Bible Sunday (October 23rd) in One World Week, we will be celebrating diversity….the Bible is a collection of over 60 diverse books after all… and through two photographic exhibitions we will delight to see such diversity in our gardens and be challenged by “Monsanto on trial” an exhibition that explores the danger we face when biodiversity is forsaken.

    You can see these exhibitions and taste diversity throughout the week 9-5 in church. On Tuesday you can also taste a variety of fantastic cakes on offer 10-12 at the coffee morning. On Thursday, 6-7 come and meet the local photographers who have created images of flora and fauna in our own back yard. Taste too, an abundance of apples, as we sample a richer variety than you’ll find in major supermarkets….more apples than books in the Bible, is such diversity possible?  Come taste and see!
