St John's

St John's is located on Preston Road; the main A6 running through the centre of Whittle-le-Woods.  We are a lively congregation, consisting of all ages and we are pleased to be at the centre of village life, holding out the good news that only Jesus brings.

We hold to the historic Christian faith which God has revealed to us in the Bible.

We have many young families in our congregation and run a thriving youth and children's work. Please see our website for more information.

We are 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). The Diocese of Blackburn’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
