Welcome to St John's Church website

St JohnsWe hope you will be able to find all you would like to know about us here. Should you wish to arrange for a wedding, baptism or funeral, please contact us through the Parish Office initially or go to our Publications Page, click on forms and complete and return the appropriate one.

We are fortunate to worship in such a beautiful and historic building. There has been a church on this site for well over a thousand years. Legend has it that Joseph of Arimathea, who gave his tomb for Christ's burial, came to Glastonbury. It is even suggested that, in an earlier visit, he brought the boy Jesus here. Hence Glastonbury is considered by many to be the cradle of Christianity in Britain.

We want to fulfil our mission to be a Christian Spiritual Centre at the Heart of the Town, for everyone. As part of our ministry, we are pleased to welcome all visitors. Here you will have the opportunity to find spiritual refreshment, peace and tranquillity. Here, you may worship with us or simply find space and time for private prayer and meditation. Here you will also be able to see a beautiful building.

If you are able to visit us, take time to rest, have coffee, tea or light refreshments and talk with us. We hope you will enjoy your visit to Glastonbury and St John's Church.
