About Us

St. John's Broadstone is the Church of England Parish Church of Broadstone, dedicated to St. John the Baptist. We are a friendly and welcoming church with a variety of services and a wide church tradition. We are part of the Inclusive Church network and believe that God welcomes all. We are now looking forward to offering blessings for those in same-sex civil partnerships and marriages when we can, alongside our offices of baptism and weddings. We love socialising and have all sorts of events from newcomers' parties, BBQs, Fetes and fayres, and a monthly fellowship meeting on second Thursday of the month with a fascinating speaker each time.

We are committed to serving the community around us, and are thrilled to have recently obtained the Bronze Award for Eco Church, as well as becoming a Fairtrade Church. 

We offer family and children's services and events, such as Cafe Breakfast Church on the 3rd Saturday of alternatve monthis, with worship, teaching, crafts and of course breakfast! Once a month on either a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon we host Muddy Church, a family-friendly and fun-filled eco event, and our 3rd Sunday of the month at the 10am is an All Age service which in reality simply means a shorter service at the moment.

We are thrilled that the building of new community rooms, kitchen, toilets and meeting spaces on the northside of the church has been completed. These new facilities are helping us to better service the local community, as well as increase the exciting events we can offer. We offer a free Craft and Chat Group on teh third Saturday of every month, 2-4pm, and Holy Grounds coffee morning every Thursday 10am - 12 noon, starting 7th March 2024.

We have a parish hall available for hire at weekends and some evenings during the week, and our new annexe can also sometiems be hired.
