Message from the editor (25/03/18)
There is much food for thought in this month’s magazine, thinking of two inspiring letters from Steve and Andrew in particular.


I had hoped that magazine could continue - it is one of the ways we can continue to communicate as a church. However, although Glenys printed it, the new restrictions didn’t allow Elizabeth to collate it and it would have been impossible to deliver it to everyone. We hope that you get to read this edition in a few months time! In the meantime it can be read here on the webiste.


I hope to produce another magazine in a few weeks time - we shall see
how life develops. It would be wonderful to receive articles, small or large; amusing, informative, whatever appeals to you.


My thanks go to this month’s contributors, Glenys and Elizabeth and Charmian for their willingness to pursue our goal of an April Magazine.


My good wishes to you all - may you keep safe and well. Jan

We publish a monthly Magazine with ten editions per year. It contains a range of articles from the usual 'in-house' material to articles of wider concern. Many local firms advertise their services and we are grateful for their support for St John's in this way.

Magazines, costing 60p per issue, (£6 for the whole year) are available from the back of church, delivered within Menston village or can be posted. Please get in touch with the Magazine Distributors via the Parish Office if you wish to subscribe.

The Magazine is published and printed entirely 'in house'. The final process of collating and stapling the pages is undertaken by one of three teams. They have a great deal of fun undertaking this vital task which saves the parish a considerable amount of money each year. New recruits are always welcome!

If you're interested in advertising in our magazine, which gets around 250 readers a month, please contact us,
