St John's Church

St John's Church


Walton Back Lane,
S42 7LT


The church was originally built in 1917 as a daughter church in the larger parish of St.Thomas Brampton. Back then it served a small rural hamlet, just outside Chesterfield. Now Walton has grown to be a thriving suburb and the Church has grown too. In 2000, St.John's 'came of age'. The new parish of Walton was created and St John’s became a Parish Church. The last few years have seen sustained growth, so much so that we outgrew the original Church. The only way forward was to take down the old Church, and in 2006, the new Church building was opened.

Services at St John's Church:

Sundays - 9 am (Holy Communion) and 10.45 am (Service for all ages).
First Sunday each month - 6.30 pm, informal service with the emphasis on sung worship.
Tuesdays - 11.30 am, traditional service followed by a light lunch.
