John Young

A local man, John is the Director of Music for St John’s Parish Church, and his interests and activities also spill across the benefice and beyond.  He leads a choral group called In Ecclesia, who sing regularly in cathedrals throughout the country.  Across the benefice he encourages the local congregations to “Come and Sing” in the rural churches. 

John volunteers for the Wellington based charity Reminiscence Learning providing musical activities and he is a member of the Spiritual Care Team at St Margaret’s Hospice.  Relaxation time is spent walking his noisy dog Button on the hills or at the seaside. Many new projects get dreamed up on a good dog walk! He also enjoys cooking and pretending to be a gardener.
