The 2021 Lunchtime Concert Series
The St John's website is updated regularly with the latest concert information

Holocaust Memorial Day is on 27th January, when St. Johns usually holds a service at 12.30pm. This year it has been postponed (due to Covid), and the revised date is planned to Thursday 28th April - Israel's HMD. Please see the HMD website for all further information.

At every lunchtime concert the proceeds from the retiring colection are split between St. John's and another good cause. If you are unable to attend a particular concert, but would still like to contribute, please do so.
