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 first service back in church on Sunday 6th December, 2020.




Here's a message of thanks from Rev Debie to all at St John's ... and others, too:

We’ve recently managed to prevent our local Brownie and Guide groups from closing, with the help of new volunteers! Could you help us do the same for our longstanding Rainbow Unit?
You could help by offering to volunteer at St John’s on a Friday, and give these girls aged 5-7 the chance to discover their potential and learn new skills that set them up for life. 
No experience necessary. We will provide lots of support, offer free training and give you a friendly welcome! You will need to undertake an enhanced DBS check and complete a couple of online Safeguarding courses.
We also have a range of flexible volunteering opportunities available across Urmston in groups with girls aged 5-18.
If you are interested, or would like to know more, please email or register online at and we will be in touch.
Thank you!

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.
