I've attended several concerts at SJE, the most recent being on 29 June 2019 (a recital of harpsichord and classical guitar music). The church is the venue for "SJE Arts" and hosts events regularly. The acoustics are excellent and the church has several interesting features, including a set of paintings of the Stations of the Cross around the nave and an intricate rood screen. The stained glass window above the altar and needlework altarpiece are also worth a look!

Visited for a concert and attended the pre concert talk. The complex is interesting and the church is a great venue for music. The bar was an unexpected bonus. It was a very chilly day and the church was just about warm enough so if its cold, come with layers!

Great collection of prints and etchings from the Oxford Cooperative. Lovely spacious venue for exhibition, so could really enjoy viewing at leisure. Plus info about printmaking courses in the area.

This was our second visit to see Tom Russell at St John the Evangelist. The church is lovely, with a beautiful rood screen that provides an excellent back drop to the concert. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere and staff, with a small bar. As for the concert, what can I say…Tom Russell was superb, as was Max de Bernardi, his guitarist, and both were friendly and approachable after the concert.

Our first visit to this venue which is proactively promoting its facilities for live music events. What sets it apart ? fantastic accoustics, cosy underfloor heating, a brightly lit and warm venue, and best of all proper chairs!!!!! Sheldonian eat your heart out. Bag an A priced seat and you can virtually be sitting amongst the musicians - pay for C and you will only get a reduced/side view. It is all on ground floor level.
all this coupled with bus stop outside the door or free street parking after 6,30pm [ or pay £6 and spoil yourself with adjacent private car park, book with tickets]. Bar with proper glasses.
And the music - fabulous - Orchestra of St John's conducted by the amazing John Lubbock at its best. Supported by the OSJ voices, the young soloists were a joy but best of all for me was Richard Milone, the first violinist, his great talent coupled with sheer enjoyment was wonderful.. We went home smiling.
We will definitely go there again, lots of great concerts scheduled for 2015..

Great venue to watch bands
Jun 2013 • Friends
We saw the band Spring Offensive at this church and it was a great venue for it. The band are at the same level as the audience, giving it an intimate feel as oppose to when a stage is used and the acoustics served the band well. Overall a nice change to the usual bar venues that bands tend to play in, plus if you like church aesthetics the venue will also please you.
