St John the Baptist Church is a friendly and open minded community . We have a strong sense of fun,  and a well developed social conscience. We do our very best to care for each other and to serve our community. Bishop's Castle is a vibrant and interesting place to live, surrounded by beautiful  countryside which never fails to lift our spirits.

From January until Palm Sunday , we  hold our services in the Church Barn in order to stay warm!
