Knowing, growing in and sharing in Jesus' love in Burscough and beyond

St John the Baptist Church (often known as St John’s or SJB) is a lively, Church of England, Church serving our local community.  We aim to be a friendly church that is welcoming for all, offering a wide variety of worship styles – a place for everyone to celebrate together.

We warmly invite you to connect with the church family and join in with our services, groups and activities.  Jesus invites us all to ‘come and see’ the joy of following Him.
