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. 

    Our Reader John Ward preaches this Sunday 22nd January at both the Said Eucharist at 8.30 and Sung Eucharist ar 10. The readings are from Isaiah (9.1-4) Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians (1.10-18) and the Gospel of St Matthew (4.12-23). 

    This is also Homless Sunday. Over Christmas and Epiphnay we have recreated a tableau of a homeless Mary and Jesus and have collected fior the Greater Manchester Night Shelter. Thank you to all who have contributed.
