WELCOME to St John's website.


(We are also on Facebook)



Our usual services continue in St John’s at 11.00am each Sunday, except

this Sunday (26th March) when there will be a service in All Saints, Raheny at 10.30 am.


[Reminder: the clocks go forward – an earlier start!!]


This will be a joint Farewell Service for Canon Aisling Shine, who is retiring from active ministry in the Church of Ireland. It will be an opportunity to show our appreciation to Aisling for her many years of selfless and dedicated ministry in St John’s and All Saints’, as well as in the wider church as a Canon of Christ Church Cathedral and a member of Diocesan Synod and of General Synod.

All are welcome to join us.

Covid rules apply.


Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you,

That you love one another;

even as I have loved you, that you also love one another”.


The peace of the Lord be always with you.


At this time of a vacancy when we have no Rector, we are pleased to say that our services are continuing week by week thanks to the dedication of a team of people. Our Rural Dean, Canon Leslie Robinson, has overall care of the parish until a new rector is instituted. We thank Canon Robert Deane and the Rev’d John Marchant for leading our worship up to this point. The Archbishop has appointed the Rev’d Tom O’Brien to provide pastoral care during the remainder of the vacancy. We continue to be ably served by our newly commissioned lay-reader, Lynn Adams. And of course, the services would not be complete without Sylvia on our organ. Thank you all.

St John's is a Church of Ireland Church (Anglican, Episcopalian).

The parish of Coolock is grouped with the Parish of Raheny - All Saints' Church.

While both churches are welcoming places, they are both completely different architecturally – St John’s was built as a small country church, has 9thC artifacts, and is associated with St Brendan and has stained glass by Burne-Jones, Child, Purser and Meyers, while All Saints’ church is a magnificent ornate building, erected on the corner of St Anne’s Park, thanks to the generosity of Lord Ardilaun of the Guinness family.
