Church of England Diocese of Blackburn St. John Little Thornton

St John's, Little Thornton

Welcome! We are a friendly and inclusive parish church and if you come to visit us I'm sure you will feel at home. 

At the moment, like all places of worship we are not able to hold services in church. 
We continue to meet online for our service each week on our YouTube channel. Sundays at 10.30am and available anytime afterwards.

We aim to have Jesus at the heart of everything we do, not only in church when we worship but in our daily lives, work places, schools and homes.

The parish of Little Thornton: St John the Evangelist 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.
