St John the Baptist is a friendly Anglican church with a heart to serve God in our local community. We are always seeking fresh ways to engage with God with the best of traditional and contemporary worship. Why not join us for one of our Sunday morning services? We have a thriving Sunday School, plus 'the Grid' youth group. Come along soon – we'd love to see you.

But church isn't just for Sunday … check out our programme of events and the various groups who meet in the week. From Mothers and Toddlers and the Men's Group to house groups who meet for Bible study and fellowship, there's something for everyone.

See you soon!
