Music at St John's
St John's is a small, friendly village church.
On April 11th 2007 St. Mary's Mirfield, St. Paul's Eastthorpe, and St. John's Upper Hopton became a single benefice to form the Mirfield Team Parish. St John's is a small, friendly, village church with a congregation ranging from the active sunday school children, couples getting married to those enjoying retirement. Many of the congregation come from outside the village in order to take part in worship and fellowship at St John's. The church itself is a beautiful serene building in which it is easy to find peace and tranquility. The church is often decorated with flowers and the church yard looks stunning with daffodils in spring. If you are new to the area, you can be sure of a warm welcome at St John's. Please come and introduce yourself to the vicar, churchwarden or sidesperson so we can make you feel at home.
