The Church continues to be alive and active, but now our buildings must close.

We are seeing an increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must physically distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Diocese of Liverpool are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continues but cannot be done in this building.
This website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.
Please also see our Facebook link and page.

The vicar and churchwardens of this church can be contacted in an emergency by telephone - see below , or by email:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

With every blessing,

“Even when the shepherd finds his lost sheep,  it goes rushing all about – and the only way he can round it up is to seize it, hurl it to the ground, bind it’s legs, throw it over his shoulders and carry it home.

The poor sheep doesn’t understand. It thinks it’s being captured – killed!

But the shepherd is saving its life.

And sometimes we don’t understand what God is doing in our lives either. It may even look like God is hurting you.

But you can trust your Shepherd, who loves you. He carries you close to his heart.”

“He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs and carried them close to His heart.”                      (Isaiah 40:11)

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy.

Sustain and support the anxious,

be with those who care for the sick,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may find comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen

Sharing God's Love,  Serving One Another



Our church

Welcome to the Website of St John’s Anglican Church, Ainsdale.

St John’s is situated in Ainsdale village a few miles south of Southport and is part of the Church of England, belonging to the Diocese of Liverpool.

Our Church is one which aims to nurture people in the Christian faith and to bring the love of Christ to those in our Community. This is shown both by the variety of Church worship styles that we offer to people each week and also in the many social events, community services and various activities for all ages that our members are involved in. There really is something for everyone at St. John’s!

We moved back into our Church in November 2017, having completed a 6-year building redevelopment scheme for both the Church building the Church Hall. As a result of this, we now have a wonderful worship space as well as wonderful modern facilities which enable us to hold many other social events as well. Our Church building is now open every day of the week for all sorts of activities and is a Church which is truly at the heart of our community. The congregation have worked tirelessly to raise the incredible amount of over £600,000 to enable this development scheme to be competed (that’s why it took us 6 years to complete!) and everyone agrees that it has been well worth the effort!

Our team at St. John’s have felt wonderfully privileged to see the dedication and commitment of the congregation at our church to this redevelopment scheme, as the easy option of just doing the necessary repairs and replacing the old roof would have cost us less than half of what we ended up spending. To us this shows not only their dedication to the fundraising effort, but also their commitment to the community we are called to serve. This continuing commitment also means that you can be assured of a very warm welcome here - whenever you join us for worship or for a social gathering - and we're not talking about the underfloor heating!

We hope that you will enjoy exploring our website to find out a little bit more about us and that you will feel that you’d like to come along and meet us at some time in the near future.


We now have a Gallery page where you can see pictures of the church and from recent events.


 We have signed up to, and support the ideals of the Church or England digital charter and the 'Contract for the Web' from the World Wide Web Foundation.
