The Church and Community Centre of St John the Evangelist was built in 1973 to serve several new housing developments. The congregation is friendly and welcoming to newcomers and visitors alike although relatively small. There is a sizeable Sunday School which meets alongside the morning service most weeks, joining together for communion.
Anglican “middle-of-the-road” would best describe the worship with music being supplied by electronic organ or sometimes CD accompaniment.
New members will be warmly welcomed by the diverse groups which use our multi-purpose building. These include the Breightmet Babies (a parent/ guardian/ carer and toddler group), the Rainbows and Brownies, the Ladies Group, Weight Watchers, the Dance Club and the five-nights-a-week licensed Social Club.
