Church Open For Private & Personal Prayer Sundays between 9:30 & 10:30

Every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. for 1hr

Chorley Road

From Sunday 28th June, we are opening St John's Church for private and personal prayer each Sunday between 9.30 am and 10.30 am. Please be aware that guidelines are changing all the time and details are subject to change at any time. Regular updates will be given on our parish pew sheet, websites and social media platforms along with other information.

These times are for private and personal prayer only - there will be no formal church services as these are not allowed. School forms will not be signed as this is not a service of worship. If you wish, you will be able to make an offering to the work of the church during this time. People may arrive or leave at any point during this period. Please work with the stewards on duty to follow the instructions for everyone’s safety. If the building becomes particularly busy, you may be asked to wait outside to maintain social distancing. You are asked to use the hand gel provided when entering or leaving the building.

Everyone is welcome in our churches however government guidelines state that you should not attend if you are 70 or over and in any vulnerable category. If you are in one of these groups, you should follow any medical advice and, if you do attend, you do so at your own risk. Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 / Coronavirus or who is in a household where someone is displaying symptoms MUST NOT attend.
