About Us

St John's is one of three churches in our Benefice, along with St Oswald's in Malpas and Holy Trinity in Bickerton. I hope that you find this page helpful; you are warmly encouraged to visit our churches either for worship or one of the many events that are held in our churches from time to time.

We are welcoming churches and aim to appeal to all; there are a wide variety of services ranging from the Book of Common Prayer to Common Worship, with a family service at St Oswald’s led by the leaders of our young people’s group known as Ozzie’s Club. We are of a central Churchmanship and are inclusive; we hope that you will feel the warmth of the welcome that we offer as you join us for whatever you are attending.

Our churches are for you in the good times but also the tough times and so many come to us at the milestone events of life as well as week by week in the ordinary and everyday events of life. You will be made most welcome.

With all good wishes,


The Revd Canon Ian A. Davenport, Rector.
