Otterburn: St John the Evangelist

St John's is open every day from about 9am - 5pm. All are very welcome to visit the church and to spend time in prayer and meditation.  We are now worshipping in the church on the first Sunday and third Sunday of the month again and are particularly pleased when people choose to use St John's for their marriage service , or to bring children for baptism.  Look out on our Facebook page Redesdale Churches for up to date information, as well as the updates here.
