The closing date for getting your name on the church Electoral Roll prior to the Annual Church Meeting is Sunday 25th April. You have to be on the Electoral Roll to have a vote at the Annual Church Meeting or to hold some positions in our church life. Everyone who’s a baptised Christian, aged 16 or over and either lives in the parish or has attended St John’s for at least six months in the past is welcome to apply to join the Electoral Roll (you don’t have to have been a C of E member before, providing your original church believes in the Trinity). There are forms available, so please ask for one if you would like it.

The Rev Debie Blair licensed to St John’s

The Bishop of Middleton has licensed the Reverend Debra Blair as Curate-in-Charge at St John’s Flixton. The ceremony was completed at our service in church on Sunday 6th December, 2020.









At St John's we do not ask people outside the church to help with our expenses as a church, believing that our own members' giving should enable us to 'pay our way' (though friends and visitors do make donations from time to time), and our Church Council has reaffirmed its longstanding policy that we will give away, this year as in any other, one tenth of our total donation income to Christian and charitable work outside our own. We believe in a generous God who will care for us if we are generous too.   

In addition, right now we are having a special collection which will form the basis for an extra donation by us to a Christian charity or charities working with those in need because of the coronavirus, at home and/or abroad. This is primarily an appeal to our own church members, but anyone is welcome to join in by using the red button on our Home Page - click here to go to it.
