St John's Church, Burwardsley is in the village of Burwardsley, Cheshire, England. It has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building. It is an active Anglican parish church in the diocese of Chester, the archdeaconry of Chester and the deanery of Malpas. Its benefice is combined with those of Holy Trinity, Bickerton, St Wenefrede, Bickley, and All Saints, Harthill.
The church originated in the 17th century. It has a buttress dated 1730 and the church was restored in 1795. In 1871 a Victorian restoration was carried out by John Douglas, which included a bell turret. A further restoration with the addition of a chancel, attributed to John Douglas, was carried out around 1878.
It is built in ashlar buff sandstone with a Welsh slate roof. Its plan consists of a three-bay nave, a one-bay chancel with a side chapel, and a south porch. The bays of the nave are divided by buttresses and they have two or four-light mullioned windows with arch-headed lights. The east window has three round-headed lights, the central one being taller. The west window is simple with Y-tracery. The bell turret is at the west end and has a pyramidal roof.
