Bishop Monkton: St John the Baptist

St John the Baptist Church is a welcoming and active church community situated in the heart of the North Yorkshire village of Bishop Monkton near Ripon.  We are part of the benefice of Ripon Cathedral.

As we gradually move out of lockdown, we will be holding a service on Sundays in St. John's and in St. Leonard's, Burton Leonard at 9.30am and 11.00am.    Please check church noticeboards, village magazine and website or our Facebook page for details.  The plans to start our Children Led and Family Eucharist Services in July have been postponed until September, now that we are allowed to sing in church.. 

Our churches will remain open for private prayer. We kindly ask that you follow the guidelines posted at the back of each church.

Reverend Robb Wainwright was licensed as our new Associate Priest at a service in Ripon Cathedral in October and is enjoying getting to know people in our two communities. He is available for home-visits (when permitted) or on the phone 01765 676298 and is always happy to stop and chat if you meet him out and about.

If you are wanting to have a christening or a wedding; or are in the sad position of having to plan a funeral, please contact Revd. Robb for details of how these are being held in our church.

We are fortunate to be part of a friendly and helpful community. If you are in need of help with shopping, appointments or simply want to talk to someone, please get in touch with our churchwarden, Sue Short on 01765 677496.
