St John's Church

We are an Anglican evangelical Church in Whitehaven, West Cumbria

We love welcoming newcomers! As we continue to emerge from lockdown we’d love to begin to get to know you. Jesus welcomes us, and so we want to welcome others.

Our aim is to be shaped by the Bible as God's Word, and so we speak about having Gospel DNA. We want to be:

and Jesus-centred

COVID-19 Updates

We have had to change the way we work because of Covid-19.

From the beginning of the lockdown we have been recording a weekly service which has been available on YouTube from 6.00am on Sundays. These YouTube services will continue for the time being.

Thankfully Sunday services, now, are returning to normal times. We are planning for Sunday children's groups again to be in operation from September. We are carefully following Church of England advice on things like face coverings for all our on-site activities.

Mid-week children's group have been up and running in the church hall during July, and will resume again in September. This will include a new Tiny Tots playgroup. Look out for details!

During the first lockdown we began weekly prayer meetings on Sunday evenings at 8.30pm on Zoom. These have continued and we have decided to make this a permanent feature of our church life rather than returning to Sunday evening services.

If you are struggling due to the pandemic in any way, please get in touch with one of the clergy, Fergus Pearson or Si Walker, or use the form below.
