Church of England Diocese of Carlisle St. John, Houghton

About Us

St John's and St Peter's are two churches within one parish, rooted in Bible teaching and prayer. Our aim 'to love Christ and make Him known' is manifest in the many and varied outreach and nurture groups. Sunday morning gatherings attract people from a wide age range and a wide geographical area. Children and young people meet in their own groups (except for Church Family services) and there is a crèche available. Midweek activities cater for young people, men, women and those who are retired. We also have a good number of home groups (alternating with our central prayer meeting) and regularly run 'Christianity Explored' and 'Discipleship Explored' courses.
