Welcome to St John's


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

    On Sundays we usually 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. 

    This  Sunday, Alice Jolley, an ordinand at Wescott House, Cambridge, preaches on her last Sunday with us.

    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.
