Welcome to St John the Baptist Parish

St John the Baptist Church is a small country parish serving a large rural hinterland.  Its worship is traditional with openness to a more contemporary style and child-friendly services.  The parish engages with its Community through its Opportunity Shop and various programmes.


 This Sunday, 6 August 2017, we farewell Peter and Joan Minchin as they move to the Nelson region at a breakfast between the two services. Come at 8.45 and join us for breakfast.  The Rev’d Joan Minchin is presiding at both services 8.00am and 10.00am this week.
