Welcome to St John's
Welcome to St John's, the parish church of Hartford. We are an evangelical Christian church, located near the town of Northwich, Cheshire.
We hope we can help you find out more about the Christian faith, the life of our church, who's who on the staff team, and what we do on Sundays. There's plenty of ways for adults and children to get involved.
Holiday Club 2016
St John's Holiday Club runs from Tuesday 30th August to Friday 2nd September. This year's club is called "You've got a friend!" and is for children aged between 4 and 11 years old (on 31st August 2016).
There will be games, Bible stories, singing and dancing, drama, craft, quizzes and lots more. Also, there will be a free cafe for parents and carers running during the Holiday Club. The club runs from 10am to 12pm each day.
Churchyard Grass Cutting
Many people have commented on the state of St John's churchyard, in particular the very long grass. The church is acutely aware of this problem: it has an impact on the appearance of our village and causes distress to families visiting graves.
However, the churchyard is the responsibility of Cheshire West and Cheshire Council (CWAC), not the church.
Pray, bake, read
"Pray, bake, read" is a new scheme we are starting to support our local schools.
It involves being part of a small team, matched to one of the schools in our parish, with a commitment to pray for the school, bake (or buy!) occasional cakes for the staff, and offer a small amount of time once every week or two to help in the classroom, listening to children reading to you.
This is a wonderful way to support our existing work in this area and develop stronger links within our local schools.
