Music plays a big part in the worship at St John’s. The senior choir sings a Mass Setting (with congregational participation) and an anthem at each Sung Eucharist. The junior choir joins the senior choir to sing at an All-Age Eucharist on the first Sunday of each month.
The church is privileged to have a ‘Father’ Willis 3 manual organ (1896) and Venables and Son Custom 200 Chamber Grand Piano.
The natural acoustic makes St John’s a desirable concert venue. Recent concerts have been given by Barnet Symphony Orchestra, Finchley Chamber Orchestra, Barnet Choral Society and Finchley Chamber Choir.
The Parish Centre has an upright piano and two sizeable rooms making it an ideal rehearsal venue. Opera 24 rehearsed their recent production of Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte in June 2014 at St John’s.
