St John's Church at Southgate is a modern church that was designed by David Cole, an architect from Buchan, Laird and Bawden. The original St John's church was built in 1927 and located off City Road not far from the present church. The site was chosen because of its central location and access to public transport. In 1989 the church building was demolished to make way for the Southgate development.

The design of the present church links architecturally with the Southgate complex. St John's is first and foremost a place of worship. However, St Johns was designed also to serve a range of purposes, and it is an ideal venue for concerts and a centre for meetings and functions. For its many visitors the church provides a place for friendship and support.
