About Us


St John’s Guild was founded in 1919 through the initiative of Miss Dorothy Light and the Reverend Christian Waudby, a blind Anglican Priest.

They were concerned at the isolation and loneliness in which so many blind people lived.

Today the Guild supports Member Branches throughout England and is currently aiming to provide accessibility to liturgical services for blind and visually impaired people within churches.

We value the input of blind and visually impaired people in the management of our organization and in the development of services.
