A boom-time church for a rich city parish

St John's is a product of industry and prosperity, built in 1754-55 when the congregation of the nearby Priory church became too large. The Georgian tower was added in 1784. Lancaster's port on the River Lune was thriving, the population was growing and the church reflects this in its stylish, urbane interior.

Everything about it is smart. There are galleries over the aisles and numbered box pews below.

The church is full of gleaming polished wood and rich colours. Two Victorian stained-glass windows are both sumptuous and subtle.

Our churches cost on average, £2500 per year, to keep them clean, conservation work, maintenance checks and in a safe condition for visitors to come and enjoy.
