St John the Baptist

We are delighted to welcome you to the Parish of Hythe.

We would love to welcome you to our services at St John's Church. Each Sunday we have three morning services.

At 9:30am we have Bubble Church which is a 30-minute service designed especially for young families.

At 10:15am we have a short Morning Worship Service with modern worship songs and a thought for the day.

At 11:15am we have our more traditional Holy Communion Service.

We also have a monthly Cafe Church service which takes place in St John's Hall at 5:00pm on the first Sunday of the month, and Evensong at St John's at 5:30pm on the second Sunday of the month (during British Summer Time only).

What's on

Bubble Church

Every Sunday at for 30 mins
St John the Baptist
New Road Hythe Southampton, SO45 6BP, United Kingdom

Bubble Church is a weekly Sunday church service especially for babies, toddlers, and young families. It's a puppet-packed, Jesus-centred, coffee-and-croissant-fuelled, 30 minute kids and families adventure.

Here's the deal: you turn up 10 minutes before it starts for a croissant or pain au chocolat and a coffee, then you'll be guided to a 'bubble', and you and your little ones will share in 30 minutes of song, story, puppets and prayer.


The Parish of Hythe 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, PSO. The Diocese of Winchester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. 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.
