About Us

St John the Baptist Church is part of the Chipping Barnet Team Ministry comprising St Mark’s, Barnet Vale, St Peter’s, Arkley and St Stephen’s, Bell’s Hill. As the Church of England parish church, we are available for all the people of Barnet. Many people at very different stages of life and belief discover through the church how God relates to ordinary life. We try to cater both for those who come occasionally, for those who come regularly and for newcomers. Christians have worshipped here since it was first built some 1100 years ago. Generations of people have adapted the building for its main purpose - to be the focus and base for our church’s mission in Barnet. We exist to discover the love of God revealed in the world. By worship, prayer, teaching and service we seek to point to that love most especially made known in the person of Jesus Christ. We work closely with the three other churches in the team and with Churches Together in Barnet.
