‘The Ringstone in Aveland Group of Churches is committed to safeguarding the welfare of all young people and vulnerable adults’.
St. John the Baptist Church is an impressive Grade 1 medieval building, standing at the head of Morton High Street. It is the only church in the Group to have its own Church Hall which is conveniently situated opposite the Church. This is a valued amenity, used by both church and village Groups such as the Cubs and Guides.
The congregation has remained steady in recent years at between 35-40 worshippers. There are a variety of services each month, which are enhanced by a small but enthusiastic choir. As the largest village in the Group, the majority of occasional services are held in Morton.
The church is blessed in having a Group of committed and enthusiastic parishioners who work hard to develop fellowship within the community. As a result of this regular fundraising and fellowship events are held, including quiz nights, bingo, coffee mornings and our now famous Saturday breakfasts, along with well supported harvest suppers and Christmas lunches.
The Group supports Bourne Food Bank and Morton provides the centre for donations of food which are sent regularly to the Food Bank.
The churchyard surrounding the Church is now closed for burials and the new cemetery is situated nearby in Haconby Lane.
