Today, the church is a place which inspires and enthralls, with its architecture, ring of eight bells, stunning organ and magnificent high altar and reredos, and provides an environment in which we worship in an anglo-catholic tradition.
With regular weekday and Sunday services, a Sunday School and a variety of social and fellowship activities and groups, St John's is a church which will truly help you to grow your faith and be a member of the local community.
St John’s was designed by architect George Frederick Bodley and was built between 1867 and 1870 at a cost of £25,000 (over £2m today) which was met by the wife of Revd J. C. Reade.
