St John Timberhill remains a vibrant church in the centre of Norwich. It has an enthusiastic and and committed congregation that prefer to follow a traditional church service.
There is an excellent web site accessed by clicking the cross of St. John.
The emblem of ST JOHN THE BAPTIST - The Maltese Cross of silver on a black field is also the emblem of the hospital of St John of Jerusalem and of course St. John's Ambulance
The main Anglo-Catholic church of Norwich is in the city centre, opposite the John Lewis department store and is dedicated to S. John the Baptist, and can be found at the top of Timberhill. The church is open each day for private prayer and worship from about 7 am until about 5 pm in the summer and about 4 pm in the winter months - it usually closes after the High Mass on a Sunday. Mass is said daily either at S. John or at the Julian Shrine, just around the corner, and under the same management.
Our services are held according to the modern rites of the Western Church, but they are celebrated with traditional ceremonial. The large congregation is known for its strong and enthusiastic singing without a choir to lead, and many from Norwich and the surrounding countryside regard S. John as their special church for special occasions.
