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. Revd Vickie Morgan, 07429 187233

Welcome to our Harvest celebrations on 3rd October with a Harvest Communion at 8am followed by an All Age Worship service at 10am. All are welcome. Food collections will be made for the Beacon Food Bank in Havant.
Sovereign World Trust is the charity of the month for September
Sovereign World Trust supplies much needed Christian teaching and preaching resources to pastors, libraries and training organisations in poor and often remote areas across the world.
The church is growing most rapidly in the poorest nations. Unfortunately in these developing countries, opportunities for formal training are very limited. In rural areas, most married pastors need to remain at home with their families, growing food on their small plots of land, as well as caring for their churches. They learn about leadership ‘on the job’.
Following the government’s announcement on the 19th July here are the new guidelines for worship at Saint John’s.
Social Distancing – We no longer need to social distance in church but please be mindful of those who wish to remain distanced, perhaps ask if it is okay to sit next to someone before sitting down.
These guidelines are formalised in our Risk Assessment for attending worship.
