I’m New

You would be very welcome to join us at 9.15 on a Sunday morning at St. John the Baptist, Marldon.

What happens at the Sunday service?

  • Worship and teaching.
  • We share communion if you wish to take it.
  • Space at the back for children to play, and Junior Church joins us near the end of the service.
  • Most services last about 70-75 minutes.
  • Refreshments after the service are served in the Village Hall and we’d love to meet you there.

What do I do?

  • All the words are in a service booklet and hymn book.
  • You can sit anywhere.
  • There’s no dress code.
  • There is a collection during the service so you can give money if you wish to. Many people give through their bank accounts.
  • We don’t worry about noisy babies or young children!

How do I get there?

  • There is a village car park on the road just past the church (opposite the Church House Inn), and others park on the road nearby.
  • The entrance is either from the main gateway off Church Hill or through the gate by the Church House Inn.

Accessibility

  • There is room for buggies inside the church and always plenty of people on hand to assist should you need it.
  • There is a toilet by the church (not disabled) with further toilets, disabled facilities and baby changing facilities in the Village Hall nearby.
  • Space for wheelchairs; for any people who need assistance with access, please contact Steph Webb, Churchwarden.
