St Johns Church

Revd. Canon Brian McConkey was inducted as our vicar on 26th April 2017.

The Church of St Johns is part of a United Benefice with St Wilfrids, Ribchester and  All Hallows, Mitton. All Hallows and St John's have been a joint Benefice for a number of years but the joining of the three parishes in 2017 started an exciting new chapter for us all. 

On 1st July 2018 we welcomed Karen Herschell, our new curate. Karen is living at the vicarage by St John's church in Hurst Green with her husband and son.
