St John’s Church is one of Bury St Edmunds’ iconic landmarks with its towering 170ft spire. It is one of England’s first great Victorian Gothic churches and was built in 1841 built of white bricks produced at nearby Woolpit.
St John is an Anglican catholic church with a clearly affirming and inclusive approach.
We welcome a wide mixture of ages and backgrounds into our welcoming and friendly community. Our main Sunday service is the Parish Mass at 11.00am, where music is enhanced by the recently restored organ and an accomplished organist. Laying on of hands and anointing for healing is available at the end of the service each Sunday.
