St John's Northgate Church

Book Tickets Online


St. John's Northgate is an ancient Church with an active worshipping membership, reflecting a continuous worshipping community here for over a thousand years. The first building was a friary, one of a necklaces of Churches built around the Abbey. Then followed the 14th Century building (of which there is still evidence) removed in the 18th Century to make room for the Georgian Church. Its interior was subsequently altered by the Victorians and most recently refurbished to satisfy the demands of today’s worshippers – a Methodist society. Within the building there are a number of objects of interest. The Church also has a hall for functions in nearby St. John's Lane.
