St John's Church Failsworth

We are a welcoming community church in the centre of Failsworth, with a diverse and inclusive congregation.

Our regular Services on most Sundays are a Parish Communion with hymns at 9.30 am and then an All Age Family Friendly Service at 11.00 (for 40 mins). On the 1st Sunday of the month, both congregations come together for an All Age Parish Communion at 10.00 am, as we do on Christmas Day, Easter Day and other special occasions like the Confirmation Service with Bishop Mark.

We also have a regular midweek Communion each Weds at 10.00 am Followed by refreshments in the Church Lounge. All very welcome.

What's on

Holy Communion Common Worship

Every Wednesday at for 45 mins
St John's Church Failsworth
Oldham Road Failsworth Manchester, M35 9JN, United Kingdom

The Wednesday Eucharist is a said service of Holy Communion. This is a gentle and quiet service with all welcome to receive the bread of Holy Communion (not wine at present because of Covid-19). A short reflection may be given. Sadly, we are not able to offer refreshments after the service at the moment but look forward to the day when we are able to do so again.

A fun evening with this enthusiastic choir, members of which keep telling me how excited they are to be doing a concert at St John's Church.
