Baptisms, Weddings, Banns


Baptisms take place on the 2nd Sunday of most months at during the 10am mass and on the 4th Sunday of most months at 11.45am. We do not have baptisms during the penitential seasons of Lent and Advent. Please contact the Vicar in plenty of time - we ask for two months' notice. We also limit the number of baptisms at any one service because of space so it is advisable to book as early as you can.


If you wish to arrange a wedding please contact a member of the clergy. In order to get married at St John's you must either:

1. Reside within the parish boundary

2. Be on the Electoral Roll of St John's

3. Be able to demonstrate a connection with St John's according to the Marriage Act (For example, you may have been baptised at St John's, or have lived in the parish at some point in the past). For full details see the Church of England guidance here:

You need to have your banns called at St John's if you are getting married at another church but live within the parish boundary of St John's Caterham. Please contact the vicar.
