St. John's Parish Church, Blackpool

St. John's Parish Church, Blackpool

The Church of Saint John the Evangelist or St John's Church is an Anglican church in Blackpool. It was completed in 1878. A church was built on the site in 1821 and was replaced by the current building to accommodate a larger congregation. It was dedicated to John the Evangelist and consecrated on 6 July 1821 by George Law, the Bishop of Chester.

The church was designed by Garlick, Park and Sykes in the Early English style from yellow stone, with slate roofs and ashlar interiors. The tower is at the south west of the building and has four stages and angled buttresses which are topped with pinnacles and finials. On each wall of the tower are two tall Belfry louvres. It has been restored and renovated in 1986 and from 2000–2006. St John's is an active parish church in the Diocese of Blackburn and the archdeaconry of Lancaster.
