St John's Baxenden

We are all experiencing challenging times from the pressures caused by the Covid-19 virus however we are slowly bringing the church building back into use.  Children's church meets at 10am.

Welcome to Baxenden St John.  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

The parish of Baxenden: St John is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. John Massey is the current PSO.

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
