St John’s College is founded on Anglican values. We seek to express the historic Christian tradition of faith and worship in a critical and informed manner.

The Chapel of St John the Evangelist

Our College Chapel is open to all. Everyone is welcome to attend our services, receive communion, or to use the Chapel for their own quiet reflection.
