Welcome to St John’s Church

Welcome to the website of St. John’s Church, Wakefield, England. St. John’s is an Anglican church, part of the Church of England, but we are pleased to welcome visitors of all faiths and none, either in person, or through this website.  If you haven’t had the opportunity yet, perhaps you may be able to come and see us in person some time in the future.  We should be pleased to see you.

St. John’s Church is a beautiful building, built in 1795, but extensively reordered at the end of the nineteenth century, with the addition of a chancel in a very sympathetic style in 1905.

But, more than that, St. John’s is home to a lively Christian community; a group of people who have found that following Jesus Christ brings us the answers to our deepest needs and questions and enables us to make sense of life.  Not that we no longer have any questions, but we know whom to go to with those questions.  If you aren’t at all sure about this Christian faith business and what it is all about, we would be delighted to welcome you as we welcome all honest enquirers.

please feel free to write to us or alternatively contact
01924 371029

Of course, if you are already a committed Christian and are looking for a place of worship in this area, we should be more than pleased to see you. Details of services are given on the services page.

Whoever you are, wherever you are and whatever your faith (or lack of faith), may we wish you God’s blessing in your life.

With best wishes
