St John the Baptist

Making a Family out of Strangers - that is our ambition as we seek to be your local parish church at the heart of South Leamington!

Thank you for dropping by and checking our our page on A Church Near You, we really hope you will find all the information you are looking for! We are a young, welcoming, and friendly congregation, and we would love to see you one Sunday or at one of our midweek services! 

We have lots of exciting stuff happening for everyone! From craft and games nights, to youth groups and outreach to the teenagers of the parish, and a real heart for those in our community who are most in need; we run a regular food kitchen. 

Whoever you are, a warm welcome is in store for you at St John's! 

The parish of South Leamington Priors: St John the Baptist is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Coventry’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

Youth Group

Every Friday at for 1 hour, 30 mins
St John the Baptist
Tachbrook Street Leamington Spa, CV31, GB

Our Friday youth group is predominately aimed at secondary school aged children who want a relaxed and safe place to hang out, play games, do crafts, and have space to talk.

You don't need to be a Christian to come along, but we are happy to talk about matters of faith if you want to. There is no judgement here.

All of the leaders are DBS checked, and safely recruited following Church of England policy.
