Welcome to St John's Church Sandiway

Our address is:

St John's Church, Norley Road, Sandiway, Cheshire. CW8 2JU

We are delighted to be able to slowly reopen church and the church hall for regular services. We continue to follow national and Church of England guidance to maximise safety, but it is a joy to be able to worship together and share God’s love with each other.

There is a comprehensive list of services if you follow the “services” link – a mix of traditional services, and all age family worship in the church hall or even outside on the first Sunday of the month!

There is a traditional Communion service every Thursday at 9.30 as well as the mix of Sunday services – do come along and you will be made welcome.
