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.

    On April 8th, the Sunday after Easter, the Marathon will come down Henrietta Street, St John’s Road, restricting access to the church in the morning, so we are moving our main service to 3pm in the afternoon.  After cheering the runners in the morning, we make connections with the runners by reflecting on Paul’s encouragement for us all to “run the race” looking to Jesus. Before the service starts you will be able to take part in another act of solidarity, joining with Artist in Residence at Manchester Cathedral, Stephen Raw, to create a large  piece "Together Unafraid" marking the anniversary  of the Manchester ARENA bombing. Stephen will explain more in church from 12 noon in St John's Church.

    The Cabaret for Freedom held as part of Manchester Literature Festival and Black History Month was a great success with 350 attending and over £1,000 raised for the support of 'citizenless' refugees (that is those denied leave to stay in the UK, but unable to return 'home') Thanks to all who contributed so generously with talents and 'talents' in the bliblical sense too.

    Vestry Hour: Fridays, 6-7 pm: if you wish to speak with a priest, please call in. Appointment not necessary.
