About Us

St John the Evangelist, known to many as the church by the roundabout at Waterloo, is a church that is here for everyone. It has stood, since 1824, at the heart of the South Bank and today serves the diverse communities who live in, work in, visit and pass through this busy part of London.

In the midst of our (usually) hectic city, St John’s provides sanctuary, contemplation and spiritual enrichment. We are committed to being inclusive and try to offer a genuine welcome to everyone. In the face of social injustice and deep need, St John’s responds with action.  We have taken a lead on LGBTI+ inclusion and on climate change. We’re human and spontaneous rather than process-driven - we get things done
