Music at St John's

Music banner

Music plays an important role in worship at St John's. The weekly Solemn Eucharist includes congregational settings (The Addington Service by Richard Shephard, and The New People's Mass by Dom Gregory Murray) and a selection of hymns - typically from the 2013 edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern. This traditional feel is balanced by more contemporary worship songs where appropriate, resulting in a rich tapestry of sound which enhances worship week in week out.

Most of the music making at St John's is led with the organ, but we are currently establishing a choir to lead our worship and further enhance our Sunday service.

The pipe organ was built in 1911 by the renowned firm of J.W.Walker and Sons, Ltd, and essentially unchanged since then, it remains a glorious testimony of yesteryear, supporting congregational singing in a warm, profound way. Full details and specification can be found here.

We welcome requests from bona fide organists and associations wishing to view and play the organ.
