We welcome all in our local community and visitors to share with us in our worship and events at St John the Baptist Church Londonthorpe. We hope to be:

'A welcoming church that points to Jesus
by celebrating God's love in our community'

We find that we often draw closer to God in moments of change in our lives. We are happy to discuss with you any interest you may have in Baptisms or Weddings even if you do not normally attend our church. 

Christmas Services

All are welcome to our Christmas Carols and Christingle Service on Sunday 18th December at 4:00pm. Followed by refreshments. 

We will also be having our Late Night Holy Communion Service on Christmas Eve at 10:00pm as a way of seeing in Christmas Day.

A Poem


Fold hands to pray,
Or touch with love,
to smooth a care away,
To bind a wound,
To feed a child,
Help others day by day.

Without our hands
How could we live
Or work or cope at all?
Skilled hands save life,
Hands hold us close,
Support us when we fall.

With upturned palms,
Accept God's gifts
And count your blessings too.
Give thanks and praise,
For all you have
And what your hands can do.
