Greater London Priory Group

The Priory of England and the Islands is one of eleven international Priories of the Order of St John, and our work of providing First Aid Training and Services is carried out on our behalf by our subsidiary St John Ambulance, England's premier first aid charity.

The Greater London County Priory Group undertakes the important work of the Priory in Greater London and has a wide range of important responsibilities including:

  • Being local ambassadors for St John
  • Working closely with Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant or their representative
  • Developing strong positive relationships with key local community leaders
  • Overseeing nominations for Honours and Awards
  • Promoting faith aspects of the Order of St John through the County Chaplain
  • Liaising with the St John Fellowship and former members who can provide support and help to the Greater London County Priory Group
  • Organising fundraising at a local level in conjunction with the Head of Priory and CPG Affairs and the Fundraising Department
  • Overseeing heritage issues related to St John in London
  • Helping to support the work of the St John Eye Hospital Group in Jerusalem and St John Associations overseas
  • Arranging an annual Organ Donor Award Ceremony in partnership with NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
  • Supporting the work of St John Ambulance whenever possible


Given its unique size & population the Greater London County Priory Group is larger than in other Counties and has more members (19) as it covers the three St John Ambulance Districts – London East; London West and London South.
Other members include:

  • County Chaplain
  • County President
  • 3 Deputy Lieutenants representing HM Lord-Lieutenant
  • 3 District Managers
  • St John Fellowship Representative
  • CPG Honorary Secretary
  • SJEHG Representative
  • Organ Donor Award Representative
  • 4 members with specific interests and skills to enable the group to deliver its strategy and objectives


These arise from time to time and anyone interested in how they might join or assist the Group is encouraged to contact the Chair for an informal discussion and more information.
