Friday Late Afternoon Prayers

The church is open each Friday at 4 pm to meet to say Evening Prayer together. We would love to see you there if you can come. I strongly believe that prayer changes things and this time together will bring enormous benefits to us and to others.

Inspirational Guide and Brownie Leader Honoured

A stalwart member of the brownies and guides has been honoured in a tree-planting ceremony.


Miss Norma Rushton, who died in 2016, had two red hawthorn trees dedicated to her in St John’s Farnworth and Kearsley Parish churchyard.


Miss Rushton, who grew up in Lord Street, Kearsley, became a Brownie Leader at the age of 15 and by doing so secured the future if the 3rd Farnworth Brownie Pack, which was on the verge of folding.  Thanks to her, the pack was able to celebrate its 90th Anniversary.


She went on to become Brown Owl, District Commissioner and County Trainer, earning her a well-deserved Laurel Award – the highest award in Guiding.
