Welcome to St. John’s!

We are a Church of England congregation in the Diocese of Chester seeking to follow Jesus Christ and serve our parish of Ashton Hayes and Mouldsworth.

The style of worship at our 10.30am main morning service is relaxed and we welcome everyone into our midst. Here is the full list of our service times.

This website describes who we are and what we do. But the best way to find out about our church is to join us on Sundays – we look forward to meeting you!

As a church we take our safeguarding responsibilities extremely seriously, and we have adopted the national Church of England’s robust safeguarding procedures and guidelines. If you or anyone you are in contact with would like to talk with someone independently, please contact the Safe Spaces helpline on 0300 303 1056 or by email. Alternatively, you may contact our Chester Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser via email or phone 07703 800031. Our Parish Safeguarding Representative is Margaret Papworth (07803 242783). 

Latest News

As our church re-ordering project nears completion, public worship at St John’s has now resumed on Sundays at 9am and 10.30am. We also continue to live-stream our 10.30am Sunday service on our Facebook page.

Our current sermon series is in the Gospel of Matthew, looking at some of Jesus’ most famous and challenging parables. Details of this series and past sermons are both available here.

During the coronavirus outbreak, we will be implementing additional health and safety precautions at our Sunday morning services. Attendance at each service will be limited to approximately 30 people, and we ask members of our congregation to wear a face covering, observe social distancing and sanitise their hands on entry to the building. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms please stay at home and watch our service online on Facebook.

Would you be willing to make a donation towards the work and ministry of St John’s

It costs over £1000 per week to maintain our church, its churchyard and our ministry in this parish but due to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic our income is currently well short of this. Would you please consider making a donation to help support the work of our church in these difficult times. Every pound received will help to ensure that our church can continue as a focal point for fellowship and a valuable resource for our local community. If you are a taxpayer, Gift Aiding your donation will add a further 25p for every £1 in your gift.
