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...
The seven PCCs have decided that it is not wise for the churches to hold face-to-face services for the time being. There will be no services in the churches of the benefice until further notice. This decision was not taken lightly, but wih the rapid spread of the virus, the PCCs have all decided that it is wiser to suspend church services, rather than risk the accidental transmission of the virus.
