The Friends of St John’s Chapel work in partnership with and support the work of The Churches Conservation Trust – a national charity that looks after over 340 of England’s most important historic churches no longer needed for regular worship.
The Friends aim to help secure the future of this rare surviving example of a Georgian proprietary chapel by increasing public awareness of the chapel and its history and looking for opportunities to promote and extend its use to a wider public.
The chapel attracts visitors from all over the world. Volunteer Friends endeavour to keep the chapel doors open 7 days a week throughout the year; check on the home page for opening times.
It is possible to hire the Chapel for concerts, lectures, exhibitions and private events: the income goes towards maintenance costs. St John’s has outstanding acoustics for musical and spoken word events. For details of hire charges and bookings contact the Secretary via the Contact page
