St John's Waterloo
Here for you
Restoration under way
We have raised £5 million to transform our historic church into an accessible, sustainable place where everyone can flourish. Restoration started in July 2021 and we shall be reopening in early summer 2022. Our magnificent nave will be one of the best worship and event spaces on the South Bank and our crypt will be a thriving centre for community, wellbeing and arts.
Here for worship
St John's broad-church approach to worship attracts a diverse congregation and we celebrate a growing reputation as one of the most inclusive churches in London. Everyone is welcome. Join us on Sundays or every day for Morning Prayer, in person or online.
Here for wellbeing

Here for music and arts
St John's is a well-known music venue and runs the annual Waterloo Festival. Now we're building a year-round programme co-curated by artists and performers and involving our diverse local neighbourhood.
