St John the Evangelist, Parish of Wortley and Farnley, Leeds.

Welcome to St John's in the Parish of Wortley & Farnley.

We are small and friendly church, consisting on a wonderful mix of every age and stage! We're a broad church who relish the journey we are on together with Jesus as we seek to know Him more and live out our faith in our day to day lives. 

Why don't you come and share the journey?

During lockdown we were really conscious that some of our community struggled to access anything online. So we started our telephone service and it's been such a success that we're keeping it going! It lasts for around 15 mins, and each week draws in the readings and sermon from the Online Service, so it's a wonderful way to stay in touch.
