ST JOHN GATEWAY
St John Gateway Branch is part of the National Fellowship organisation of St John, a network of county-wide social groups that are found across the country, and a key part of the Priory of England. The Fellowship exists to support the charitable activities of the Order of St John by providing care to members and former members of the Priory in a social setting, and to assist and support St John Ambulance and the County/Local Priory Groups through a network of local branches.
St John Gateway is based in London and exists to garner financial support and charitable engagement from young professionals. In so doing, St John Gateway will secure support for the short and long term future of St John in the UK.
