St John the Baptist

Since 685AD when St Aldhelm founded a mission here in the ancient Selwood forest, Christians have been meeting on this site for worship, fellowship and encouragement to go out and serve Christ's Kingdom in the wider world.

We strive to be an inclusive church and welcome visitors of all faiths and none to enter in and hopefully find some renewal of inner strength and purpose for their lives.


The Parochial Church Council (PCC)  has adopted and works to implement the House of Bishops’ Safeguarding Policy ‘Promoting a Safer Church’.
