We have a number of groups and activities going on during the week at both St John’s and Clayton Brook. Please talk to one of the clergy or a member of the congregation if you should like to know more and perhaps get involved. 

Growth Groups

Christianity is not just for Sundays and so we have several small groups, in Whittle and Clayton Brook, which meet to read and study the Bible together, to pray and to grow friendships. Most meet in the evenings but some meet during the day. We encourage our church members to join a growth group if they can. 

Beehive Parents & Toddlers

Beehive meets on Monday mornings from 10.30 to 12 in the village hall in Chorley Old Road. For pre-schoolers of any age plus parents, grandparents or carers. Play, refreshments, songs, and sometimes a Bible story for children. 

Cafe Life 

Mondays, 9am till 2pm at Clayton Brook. A friendly café service with tea and coffee, toast, bacon rolls. For anyone to drop in. 

Tots at Church 

Combining simple Bible stories and songs for tinies with play and friendship and loads of fun. Clayton Brook Church, Tuesdays, 9.15-10.30 in term times.
