St John the Baptist
We are an Anglican Village Church, and form a part of the Springline Parish. We cater for all ages, and encourage each other to grow in our faith through prayer, a variety of activities, and relevant bible teaching.
We seek to serve our local community, including all those at RAF Scampton, and enjoy a close relationship with the children and staff at Pollyplatt Primary School, and our local Church of England School in the village. We run the Scampton Community Lottery, the proceeds of which helps to support community activities.
We believe that following and worshiping Jesus should be fun, exciting and not too 'stuffy'.
We are passionate about developing fresh expressions of church to enable our worship to be modern and relevant. This year we are participating in a season of invitation.
We offer teaching to raise awareness of baptism, confirmation, and marriage responsibilities.
We recognise and value the importance of 'Keeping Safe'
Our church building dates from the 14th century, and is closely linked with the R.A.F; the Red Arrows, and the National Churches Trust.
We extend a special welcome...
to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight or both, filthy rich, dirt poor or just about average. We especially welcome those who are crying new-borns, energetic toddlers, hyperactive grannies and everyone in between.
We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti, or like many of us can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woken up or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been in church since little Archie’s baptism.
We extend a welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome tired mums, football fanatical dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like ‘organised religion’, we’ve been there too!
We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell like the Vicar, or because Gran is visiting and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost down the Lincolnshire lanes and wound up here by mistake! We welcome tourists, red arrows watchers, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!
"Welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you for the glory of God" - Romans 15.7
