Welcome to St John’s Hopwood

 On behalf of the church community at St John’s we would like to welcome you to our website. St John’s is a friendly Christian community that seeks to enable people of all ages to meet with God through the local church.

We welcome Reverend Kirsty Screeton as our new vicar of St. John’s and St. Luke’s

Welcome, I am Rev’d Kirsty Screeton and I began my journey to ordination over 10 years ago. Having explored and tested a number of vocations, I was accepted for ordination training in 2016 and attending ‘The Queens Foundation College’ in Birmingham where I trained for three years. Here I studied a number of theological areas and was privileged to take part in a trip to Sri Lanka, time with a chaplaincy team and a placement with a local funeral directors. Before accepting the post here with St John’s and St Luke’s I was curate in the Blackrod, Daisy Hill, Westhoughton and Wingates Team for three and a half years.

Previous work was in the care suppliers trade and in regards to church I have run the Pre Sunday School Groups, been part of Deanery Youth Groups and sat on a number children projects. I have a great theological interest in the role of communion in everyone’s life, whether receiving the elements of bread and wine or whether coming forward for a blessing.  Whatever your reason for visiting the Heywood area, I would like to reassure you of a warm welcome and a place where all are accepted. Looking forward to meeting you. Blessings

Kirsty
