Know as the "Fishermen's Church" due to its location in the heart of Hull's old fishing community, St Johns was completed in 1878. The church, which is in the early English style of the Transition period of architecture, is built of red bricks with stone dressings externally and red brick internally. The interior continues to surprise first time visitors with its grandeur and beauty.

The church continues to serve the remnant of the city's fishing industry, playing a key role in the annual Lost Trawlermen's Day service held on the old St Andrew's Dock each January, as well as hosting the city's maritime groups for the July "Sea Sunday service."

The church also plays a key role in the local community. 2011 saw the completion of the Network Youth People's Centre (built on land provided by the church) which can be accessed from inside the church. As well as providing services for young people the NYPC is also used by community groups and St Johns. Renovations to St Johns interior (completed Easter 2015) provides excellent space for community groups. Recent art exhibitions celebrating Hull's Fishing Heritage and the Hull Civic Society's - Hull in Paint were so well received they will become annual events.  

Located in the heart of the inner west of the city, St John's continues to provide an ideal base for Christian outreach and witness to the local community.   

St Johns also has contacts with Trinity House, STAND, Hull FC and West Hull RLFC through Rev Tony's chaplaincies.
