St John the Baptist
The church of St John the Baptist is a beautiful small flint, stone and brick structure, with a round tower containing two bells. This lovely church lies in the fields, close by the ancient site of Onehouse Hall. There was a church in Saxon times, as recorded in the Domesday Book, but the present church is thought to have started its life during the great Norman build and rebuild period following the Conquest. Archaeologists now date the earliest part of the building as of the 1100s.
There is a car park outside the church.
Families are always welcome to all of the services.
Onehouse is part of a benefice also comprising Great Finborough, Harleston, Buxhall, Shelland, Combs and Little Finborough.

Whenever there is a 5th Sunday in the month, we hold a benefice-wide communion service - please contact us to find out where it is.
The Parish of Onehouse is fortunate to have a Church Hall (Trinity Hall). The Hall is not adjacent to the Church, but on the edge of the village, between Woodlands Close and the OHS Community Centre. There is a car park adjacent to the Hall.
In the last few years there has been extensive work undertaken to build a new toilet block and to completely refurbish the interior of the Hall. The Hall is a small, comfortable venue, used throughout the week for a variety of activities.
Each Wednesday morning at 9.30am there is a Holy Communion Service. This is followed by a Coffee Morning.
The Trinity Hall is a community resource and available for social events, meetings, private parties, etc. Please contact the Booking Officer, Sylvia Emsden for details and booking enquiries - 01449 615592
