St John's Baxenden

Welcome to Baxenden St John. We are now a joint Parish with Accrington St Paul. Services are held at St Paul's at 9am and St John's at 10.30am. Where there is a 5th Sunday there will be a joint service at 10am. The location will alternate between St Paul's and St John's. Refreshments are usually served after the services. Children's church takes place during the services at St John's except for the 4th Sunday when it is All Age.

We are not perfect churches; we will get things not quite right. We are learning to work together for the benefit of our community; and to grow closer to God as we develop our prayer life and discipleship.

We welcome ALL of ANY age, those with a lot of church background, those with some background and especially those with none! Our prayer and desire is that, whoever you are and wherever you are up to in life, we can help you meet with the Living and Loving God. We hope our services will help you pray to Him, praise Him, share with Him, listen to Him and seek to live for Him. If you have questions about Jesus, Christianity, or are a new Christian, we would love to help you. If you would like to get more involved, please contact us
