Welcome and thank you for visiting our website which I hope you will find both welcoming and useful. St. John the Baptist is an Anglican church situated to the south of Rowlands Castle near to its church primary school. With a wealth of history to explore, and many unique and beautiful features we are well worth a visit. Our adjoining church centre has excellent facilities and has full disability access. However, we are more than just a building; we are a community of people who are inspired by our faith in God, to learn from the teachings of Jesus and seek to be led by the Holy Spirit, to love and serve the community around us. We worship together on Sunday mornings, and are involved in many other aspects of church and village life. We would love to welcome you to St. John’s and get to know you, so please click on the links or download the trifold welcome leaflet to find out more.

Latest News and Upcoming Events
St Luke’s Healthcare for the clergy is the charity of the month
We provide practical, supportive services to meet the evolving needs of clergy. Sometimes health and wellbeing can be overlooked because of the everyday demands of ministry. Every week, clergy tell St Luke’s how our support, whether with a medical or wellbeing issue, has made a difference to their life and ministry.
Saint Hubert’s Musical Picnic
It is with regret that the Musical Picnic organised by the Friends of the Church of St. Hubert’s, Idsworth Trust on 17th July has had to be postponed following the announcement of the Government’s latest COVID restrictions.
To reduce the risk of infection, we will be placing sanitising stations at the entrance to the church, and organising the space to maintain social distancing. It will be necessary to register attendance for track and trace purposes. The wearing of face masks has become compulsory in enclosed public spaces from 24th July. You will need to wear a face mask if you are attending a church service on Sunday. Please bring your own as we don’t have supplies. These guidelines are formalised in our Risk Assessment for attending worship.
