OK, thanks for the information. I had wondered if it still belonged to the Chester Diocese.

Is this the ST. John's that is a listed building ? Neo classical, built of stone from Storeton quarry.

Is the rave yard still there and can you tell us what denomination it is to be danjaylai ,please ?

I too would like to know what denomination the church is to become. My father attended Bible Class at this church in 1925.

A "rave yard" eh Granny ? Latest move to tempt young folk into the church maybe. wink

I honestly have no idea.
I just work with the guy who owns it and also a couple more prominent buildings in wallasey.

I think he's new age, sort of born again christian but I've never asked.

He owns 2 other buildings aswell ( that i know of ) - 1 is to become a community cafe ( non-proffit ) and the other will be a Pub/hotel.

I don't want to say too much or give the buildings or his I.D away but that's all i know for now.

Also thanks Danjailai.


Ooooops ! Sorry about the typo error. It should have been 'grave' but rave could be appropriate as we are getting close to Halloween. ghost

Well I will blow the whistle on the other two buildings he owns.
The Kings Pub and the brighton Pub, as I have said in previous posts he intends to turn the Kings Pub into a non alcohol Pub in the hope of getting the local youth in so he can introduce them to god.I was told this by the man himself. Good luck with that one.

Haha thanks Dilly.
Wasn't sure if he wanted it to be common knowledge or not.

He told me the Kings was going to be a non-profit community cafe and the Brighton being turned back into a Pub/hotel

I've never been in St. John's - top of Church Street, right? - but from the outside it looks very graceful. I hope it is preserved and doesn't suffer a similar fate to Liscard Hall.

Its a lovely serene church and should most certainly remain a place of worship. Been inside many a time and was impressed but dont know what its like inside now, its been closed a long time.
