Welcome to the parish of Broughton St. John Baptist
Broughton Parish is an Anglican parish in the Diocese of Blackburn. We serve the ever increasing populations of Broughton and Fulwood in north Preston. We are blessed by three worship centres: the parish church of St John Baptist in Broughton; St Martin’s Chapel that sits within the Parish Hall and Office Complex on Broadway in Fulwood; St Peter’s Chapel that sits within St Peter’s Church of England Primary School and Nursery on Meadowfield in Fulwood. Broughton-in-Amounderness Church of England Primary School and Nursery, founded in 1590, is located next to the parish church.
We are a welcoming, inclusive parish who seek to serve Jesus and make him known through our prayer, worship, fellowship and outreach. God’s Holy Word and Sacraments underpin our faith, prayer and worship, and we offer a variety of services in our three worship centres to suit people’s spiritual and liturgical needs: traditional Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion; Choral Mattins and Evensong; Common Worship celebrations of sung and said Eucharist; less formal Services of the Word. We have an active Sunday School called ‘JIGSAW’ (Jesus is Great, Super and Wonderful!) that runs in our three worship centres every Sunday during school term time.
Explore our website to see what’s happening. Be assured of a warm welcome at Broughton Parish. Come and join us in worship and fellowship. We look forward to seeing you!

Inspiration for Prayer
The Second Sunday of Lent
you show to those who are in error the light of your truth,
that they may return to the way of righteousness:
grant to all those who are admitted
into the fellowship of Christ’s religion,
that they may reject those things
that are contrary to their profession,
and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same;
through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
