St John’s Hyde Park has its main parish eucharist on Sundays at 10.00am. With a tremendous choral tradition taking the best from traditional and contemporary music, education courses, community events and lots for children, St John’s is a perfect place to begin or continue your journey of faith, to enjoy a warm and active community, to make friends and have fun!
Music is at the heart of our services, taking the best from opera, spirituals, musical theatre, the choral tradition, we are always looking for new ways to incorporate exciting music and dynamic liturgy.
We frequently use instrumentalists to accompany our choir of 8, all drawn from the best London music conservatoires. Our musical director Robert Greenhill is a very busy man, but ably supported by our organ scholar Nick Miller.
Perhaps what we have become best known for in the last few years is our carol services. There are four a year, Advent, Christmas, Epiphany and Whit Carols.
Between them they tell the story of the liturgical year and employ music you would never normally hear in a church! There is genuinely something for everyone at our services and even if you have not been to church before or don’t know much about Christianity you’ll find something in our services to bring life to your soul!
