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.
