About Us

St John the Baptist is one of six churches which make up the Somerleyton Benefice.

Built mainly of flint and with a typically East Anglian round tower, the wonderful interior was designed by Sir Ninian Comper, and was described by John Betjeman as the "golden church".

We are firmly within the Anglo-Catholic tradition, and we are a Forward in Faith and Society parish under the episcopal oversight of the Bishop of Richborough.

The church is open every day from 8am to dusk.
