The St John Fellowship is a key part of the Priory of England and The Islands of the Order of St John.
The aims of the Fellowship are:
Membership of the Fellowship is open to anyone over 18
Members can be found supporting their colleagues in St John Ambulance at a wide range of events by providing administrative or logistical support and in many cases they provide the catering!
You will see Fellowship members at major sporting events such as the London Marathon and at local events like, awards ceremonies, investitures and fundraising. Members also assist at receptions organised on behalf of NHS Blood and Transplant for the families of organ donors.
Fundraising is another vital activity, providing many thousands of pounds to support the organisation in its work both at home in the UK and overseas
The contribution made by members in the service of their community is often recognised by their appointment as a Member of the Order of St John, a Royal Order of Chivalry
Originally formed as an “old comrades association” for former members of St John Ambulance, the Fellowship is open to any serving or former member of St John and anyone, over the age of 18, who wishes to support the organisation.
There are branches throughout England and the Islands with members from Cumbria and Northumberland in the north to Devon & Cornwall in the south. There are very active groups in Northern Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey too.
Many branches meet in St John premises. Some meet in the evening, some during the day, at weekends and during the week. A few hardly meet at all but exist as a “virtual branch”, keeping in touch by email or telephone but coming together to assist at events.
Each branch organises its own programme that generally includes a lively social life mixed with interesting guest speakers and visits to places of interest.
Supporting the work of St John is a important part of the Fellowship – but so is keeping in touch with our friends & colleagues
There is fun in Fellowship!
