Welcome to St John's Church, Hurst Green

COVID-19 Update: 

The Church is open for our 11am Sunday services 

Following the latest Government announcement on 9th September 2020 we are still able to gather for our Sunday service at 11am. 

In the words of the Diocese of Blackburn: "There are no restrictions on public worship which can continue as at present. Worship is not a social gathering and, indeed, at this time national crisis it is more important than ever that Christians are gathering in prayer."

We are continually assessing the risk in Church and are confident that with regular cleaning of the Church, the sanitising of hands on the way in and out, a one way system through the building, socially distanced seating, the wearing of face masks, reduced capacity and shorter services, we are safe to welcome you into our Church. 

St John's is only open for Sunday services and is closed at all other times. 

Within our United Benefice, St Wilfrid’s Church in Ribchester  is open for private prayer at the following times:

Wednesday 10.30 to 11.30 a.m. 

Friday 12 noon – 1.00 p.m. 

Everyone is most welcome to pray at St Wilfrid’s during these times, where someone will welcome you and guide you through the social distancing and hand hygiene guidelines.

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.
