St. John's Church is part of the Church of England in the village of Silverdale. We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds. Silverdale has a thriving Church primary school. We worship God in a way which brings comfort, joy and challenge to all present; and we seek to witness to the love of God in Silverdale and the wider community, aiming to serve the community with practical care, love and support.
Silverdale is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Leighton Moss, the RSPB centre is located close by.
People come to rest, reflect, walk and relax; even cyclists sometimes stop to worship at the church, still in their lycra!
During the recent Covid 19 pandemic the Church building has been closed. We are now open up for acts of public worship. There are short acts of worship on Sunday and Thursday at 10:30am.
While we were unable to worship together physically we have been worshipping online using a recorded service on Youtube. Although we are able to worship together once more in the Church building we continue to offer an online service. It is a recording of the act of worship offered in Church on Sunday and made available later that day.
The parish of Silverdale: 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(s), PSOs. 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."
