Loxwood: St John the Baptist

Welcome to the parish of Alfold & Loxwood. Although two 'border' villages of two different counties, we come together as one church family eager to learn more about Jesus together, and to serve Him in any way we can. We have lots going on midweek; from the more active like a Table Tennis Club, to the more sedentary like our Pilgrim Groups. We also seek to cater for all ages, and so we have a range of Sunday services available from the more traditional to the more informal with things like Messy Church.

Very often during the long summer days, hot air balloons float over our beautiful country parish, they seem so free and unshackled by constraints. It's a beautiful picture of the freedom Christ offers. Our hope is that this website enables you to explore that freedom a bit further. Hopefully it will answer all your questions about why, where, what, and when we do things as a church. And if it doesn't, please feel free to drop in, either to the office, or even better - one of our services. We look forward to meeting you.
