St John's

WELCOME to the Hall Church of St John the Baptist


St John’s is a Hall Church, built in 1957-58 to serve the people in the southern part of Kidlington, where there had been substantial post-war housing developments. It was always intended for both Christian worship and community use and that has continued to this day.


We are obviously taking note of all guidance issued by the NHS and the Church of England. This means that, at present, St John's is closed for all services, events and even private prayer.

But the whole parish is coming together in many ways, including a daily virtual gathering at 10am for a reflection or Eucharist. This always includes the saying together of the Lord's Prayer, so those without internet access can also join in praying together. For details of all the resources on offer, please see the parish website

We are also offering a daily email with reflection, bible reading, prayer and music. If you would like to receive this please email to Meghann Hewett or Margaret Day

if you have any concerns and want to talk to someone then please contact one of the clergy: Martin or Felicity, see here for contact

St John’s exists to enable its people to follow the example of Jesus in his acceptance of all people with love, concern and understanding for their sake (John 13:34) that together we may come to know the love of Christ. (Ephesians 3:14-19)

The building is available for hire at all times when it is not needed for other activities. Local groups use it for regular activities, especially taking advantage of the spacious main hall, with sprung floor, which is ideal for dancing and exercise classes. It is also available for one-off events, such as family parties, fund-raising events, training meetings etc. For more info see here.
