Welcome to St John's Church! We are the Church of England Church for Cark, Ravenstown, Sandside, Holker and Flookburgh.

We've a warm welcome to you in our Sunday gatherings, normally 10.00am for an hour's singing, praying, learning and a good natter over coffee afterwards. On the third Sunday every month our service is at 4.00pm in the afternoon instead of the morning. On these afternoons we meet for tea and cake beforehand, from 3.15pm.

We have a really impressive building for your wedding, Christening, or funeral.

We also run many community-based events through the year: do get in touch!
