Raising funds to finance the ongoing maintenance and restoration needs at Bromsgrove's landmark church.


Every year Friends of St John's organise events to encourage people to visit the building, and to raise money for the ongoing maintenance and restoration needs.

Saturday 20th July - Summer Open Day - Heritage Crafts and Skills 

Visit St John’s to experience Bromsgrove’s oldest, landmark building.
The Friends of St John’s, in partnership with Avoncroft Museum, will be celebrating the rich heritage found both in the church building and around Bromsgrove.

Come and enjoy a full day of fun and inspiring crafts, alongside firm favourites!
The Summer Open Day will include:
* Tower Open 11.30am to 2.30pm - ring the bells, enjoy views from the top
* Inspiring Craft - join Wendi & Leigh for a make and take session
* Timber Houses - learn to build a timber house with the team from Avoncroft Museum.
* Meet the Historian - chat to Simon Henderson and learn some church secrets
* Play the Organ - have a go and take a look inside (11am to 12.30)
* Treasure Hunt – follow the clues to find the treasures of St John’s
* Hunt for keys - where has the vicar put them!
* Meet The Bromsgrove Society - chat about local history
* View the Exhibition - church paintings and imagery on show
* Refreshments available throughout the day

We look forward to seeing you – feel free to come and explore the church and get a birds eye view of the town from the top of the tower (subject to availability and weather).

Save our Spire Appeal Project

Can you help us to restore the spire at St John's church in Bromsgrove? The tallest spire in Worcestershire needs urgent work to replace and restore the top section which is cracking due to the rusting of the metal stabilising rod.
