To find the church, we are north from the Rock shopping area in the centre of Bury (Lancashire, UK). If coming from there, head up Walmersley Road (A56) for a mile going passed Clarence Park and look out for Sunny Avenue on the left hand side. This is just before a Pedestrian Crossing and the Sundial Pub.
If heading south then we are 1.6 miles down from Junction 1 of the M66. Just head down Walmersley Road, passed Christ Church on the right. Passed the Towler Pub on the left. Look for Sunny Avenue on the right just after the Sundial and the Pedestrian Crossing.
Our address is: St John’s Church, Sunny Avenue, Bury, BL9 6PF
Parking is on the streets surrounding the church and hall. Sometimes it gets busy so please leave time to find a parking space. If coming by bus we are at the Linton Avenue stop on routes 472, 473, 482, 483, 484 and 487. This is approximately 100 yards from the church door and 120 yards from the hall door.
The address for our hall is: St John’s Hall, Parkinson Street, Bury, BL9 6NY
The hall is opposite Seedfield Bowling Club. Be careful when using Sat Nav, since the 6NY postcode covers a large area. If you reach the Seedfield Education, Development & Training Centre then you’ve gone too far! So look for the green signs above the hall entrance.
The hall and the church are joined together. So, if you find one then you’re not far from the other!
If you have an enquiry, then please call in at the Parish Office, which is at the hall on Parkinson Street between 6.30pm and 7.00pm each Wednesday. At the Office, you’ll meet at least one of the members of our Clergy team. To prepare yourself for what they look like please go to our ‘team‘ page.
If you can’t make it to the office then please either fill in the Contact Form or call the Vicar, Dave Thompson, on 0161 797 7652.
We look forward to hearing from you.
