Our Ethos

Our Ethos

St. John’s has a statement, which sums up our purpose.

“We exist to transform lives and communities by bringing people into a living and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.”


We want this statement to guide us in who we are and what we do as a church.


Who are we ?

Located in Dukinfield, a town in Tameside, on the eastern edge of Greater Manchester, nestled in the foothills of the Pennines, we are a growing and lively Anglican church in the evangelical tradition with about 200 of all ages coming on a Sunday morning, 


We are an ordinary group of people who believe God is bigger, better and closer than we can imagine. We believe God has revealed himself in Jesus and speaks to us through the Bible, his word to us. This makes the most profound difference in our lives but we also want this to transform our world and community for the better. We have a passion to share this and communicate with people who do not necessarily have any religious commitment but feel there must be more to life than this. This means that there is always a wide and diverse group of people, especially at our 10.15 Sunday service.
