Administrative History:

The church of Little St. John al. St. John without the Northgate was the church of an extra-parochial precinct and served the ancient foundation of the Hospital of St. John. The building became the property of the City Municipal Charities Trustees in 1852, and was restored two years later. It had its own incumbent and cure of souls until 1948 when a vacancy occurred. The Vicar of St. Oswald parish became priest in charge, and in 1967 the two benefices were formally united as 'The united benefice of St. Oswald with Little St. John, Chester'. The building ceased to be used for church purposes in 1969 when a faculty was granted confirming a lease by the Municipal Charities Trustees to Chester Corporation for secular use
