About Us


St John’s is a friendly church which holds a significant place within this village community. We work to make sure everyone who comes to our services is made very welcome.

This impressive Victorian church was built in 1878. It is a local landmark and can be seen for many miles in all directions, acting as a focus for the whole village. It is very popular for weddings and baptisms
