Church of England Diocese of Derby Buxton with Burbage and King Sterndale

St John the Baptist

St Johns Church, 1811
If curious then peek inside,
Perhaps you'll see a glimpse of heaven,
Architecture sanctified!

A creative choir you will find here,
they offer God inspired praise,
Choral music through the year,
Singing voices, hearts ablaze.

Cathedral-like so all are welcome,
Visitors or living near,
You'll find a seat where’re you come from,
Drink in the sacred atmosphere.

So, if you're searching for some answers,
Think the truth might be out there,
Need some space for contemplation,
Step inside - this is our prayer!
