About Us - Opening & Welcoming

Glastonbury Abbey Viewed From The Tower - click for enlargementWe try to keep St John's open as much as possible. In addition ot our spiritual role, we offer refreshments, a gift shop and the opportunity to view this very special church. If you are visiting us, the church is usually open from 10.30am to 12.30pm throughout the year. During the summer, we open from 10.30am to 4.00pm. On public holidays and some Saturdays, we open the tower to visitors. The views from the top are magnificent but to see them you must climb around 150 steps!

Glastonbury Tor Viewed From The Tower - click for enlargementWhenever we are open we try to provide a prayerful and peaceful space at the centre of our busy town. Prayer for healing, both physical, spiritual and emotional, is available on an individual basis and people bring requests for themselves, their family and friends, and for issues in a wider context in the world. Every Tuesday, Market Day, the prayer team is available in one of the side Chapels of the Church from 10.30am - 12.30pm, and also on Sunday during the morning service at 9.30am or 10.00am.

Situated at the heart of Glastonbury's town centre, St John's is an attractive and significant 12th century church. The church is approached via a level pathway and has no steps in the main entrance. Ramps for wheelchairs are situated at the chancel step to enable full access.
