St John’s Church, Wolverhampton.

St John's Church in the Square, Wolverhampton.

Built as a “chapel of ease” of St Peter’s Collegiate Church.

This rather splendid building dates back to 1758. It now stands proudly very close to the Ring Road – an oasis amidst the hubbub of the modern day. The organ actually predates this place of worship, having been built in 1684! It is believed to have been built for a competition to grace Temple Church, but was rejected – thence travelling via Dublin before being installed in St John’s Church in the Square, Wolverhampton.

There is a very interesting history attached to the progress of Christianity in Wolverhampton attached to the Wikipedia article.
