From the 18th April 2021 the churches in the Bredon Hill Group will start to reopen for public worship after the third national lockdown. This will commence with two services each Sunday across the Hill but over time as the Government's Roadmap continues, it is hoped that more services will be offered each week. Details of our services can be found on the Services and Events page.

St John the Baptist is open for private prayer everyday between 10am and 4pm.
