St John the Baptist church was built as a chapel of ease and the original building is thought to date back to the 12th century with the font bowl surviving from this time. The church has been added to since then, including the South Porch, South Aisle, Chancel and stained glass window. The church has three bells plus a small Sanctus bell which were restored for the Millennium, though for chiming only.
Where we are...
As you will be aware, Priscilla has now retired and will be leaving the benefice at the beginning of February.
At that point we will start the process of finding a new priest to fill the vacancy. It can take time to find the right candidate for the post (before Priscilla arrived, the previous vacancy had lasted some 15 months).
In the meantime Jenny will be supporting the benefice together with an array of retired and visiting clergy to take our services.
If you have a question, we recommend that a Churchwarden should be the first port of call, if appropriate to your circumstances. You can find the list of Churchwardens in Who's Who.
