Church of England Diocese of Oxford Whitchurch

Whitchurch Hill St. John the Baptist

St John's Whitchurch Hill is a beautiful Victorian 'church plant' from the 'main' church in Whitchurch on Thames. At St John's we mainly have family oriented worship. Plus Harvest, Remembrance and a popular Nine Lessons and Carols.

Worship takes place here on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. On the first and third Sundays, services are held at St. Mary's, Whitchurch on Thames.

The parish of Whitchurch 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(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 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.
