Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; 
we are the clay, and you are our potter; 
we are all the work of your hand.
(Isaiah ch. 64 v 8)


Two established congregations have come together.  Zion Norton Green and St. Johns Norton are now Norton Community Church. We are looking forward to our times of worship and our times of serving.

We enjoy various styles of worship from traditional to contemporary.  There is a modern sound system including an induction hearing loop, plus screens are used for hymns and other service material.

As an inclusive church, a warm welcome is extended to everyone.


Jesus is Alive

Welcome to our webpage 🙂  In 2022 we began a coffee morning usually Saturday once a month starting at 10:00 am for two hours. Beginning in May the day will not be fixed to a particular Saturday each month any more. This is to avoid clashes with other events. The next Coffee Morning will be 18th May ’24.



Sunday 12th May Service 10:30 am – led by Mrs Susan Harris.
Sunday 19th May Service 10:30 am – led by Mrs Yvonne Farnell.

As a congregation, we have completed the process of refurbishing of the former community centre on St. Nicholas Avenue in the middle of the Norton estate.  We are getting used to our new home, it is a shame the Covid 19 pandemic has kept us closed for long periods of time.  Our aim is to use it as a base for the church and for various community activities and projects.  We will be known as Norton Community Church and will take over developing the work done by Zion (Norton Green) on Endon Road and St John’s (Norton) on Knypersley Road. We are excited about our future, whilst remembering where we have come from and those people that have served faithfully the church societies, laying the foundation of who we are today.  Our goal is still the same today as it was in 1878 (Zion) and 1814 (St. John’s) when the old churches opened – doing God’s work for our neighbours in the name of Jesus. The first full service was 4th August ’19.  A month later we were officially opened 14th September ’19 which was followed by a Dedication service the next day.
