As well as performing a number of tricks, John, who is a member of The Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, entertained the 100-strong crowd with a routine that bridged comedy with his own interpretation of the Gospels.
Organiser Andrew Shewen said: “It was a relaxed evening of entertainment.”
“Everyone had a great time while also hearing a little bit about the Christian faith.”
An Evening with John Archer was part of a packed programme of events taking place at the venue, at Chesterfield Road South, over the coming weeks.
