St John the Baptist, Wales

‘You matter to God. You matter to us.’


Welcome to St John the Baptist, Wales where Christian worship, mission and ministry have been maintained for 1000 years. 


We are a friendly congregation who care about one another and the community where we live. The church is always open in daylight hours and prayer is at the heart of all we do. Everyone is welcome to attend any of our services and events


The global pandemic and the more recent cost of living crisis has significantly affected our income. Every regular gift, whatever size, makes a difference contributes to the mission and ministry of the Church to the community and the care of this historic building. Regular donations, which may be gift aided where applicable, allows us to plan confidently for the future. You can make a donation by following the donate link below. Thank you.
