Welcome to St John the Evangelist, Thornham.

St John’s is a family-friendly church community in the semi-rural suburbs of North Manchester.
We are an Anglican Church that it is alive in faith and actions.
We are a broad mix of age groups with people from the local and neighbouring communities.
Whether you are just visiting or looking for a place to call ‘home’ you can be sure of a warm welcome, we look forward to meeting you.

Our Vision
To offer worship and witness that honours God, inspires the faithful, engages enquirers and attracts new comers.

Coronavirus Announcement

The Rector, Church Wardens and PCC are pleased to announce that, following a review, they have taken the decision to re-open St. John’s for public worship.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you back and to worshipping God together once more in our church building.

For the moment the usual restrictions on mask wearing and social distancing continue to apply.

We will continue to offer worship each Sunday on Zoom at 10.30am and the service will be recorded and available on our Facebook page.

Please be assured that any of the ministry team will be happy to pray with anyone over the telephone if you wish to contact them.

Those who are clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 should consider very carefully whether to attend services in church at this time. A time for private prayer is set aside at St Leonard’s Middleton on Wednesday mornings 10-12 noon.
