Thinking about Baptism? Come and make a response to God's love - a desire and a commitment to respond to God's call to follow the example of Jesus Christ.

Bring your children along to St John's and enquire about a Baptism occasion for them and your family.

You may have been going to church for a while and want to make a more definite commitment in terms of your Christian faith - then let us know that you'd like to be Confirmed.

 

Do you need to arrange a funeral?

Please contact your preferred Undertaker. They will then contact us at Barlaston Church to make the necessary arrangements.

Do you want to arrange a burial?

Please contact your chosen Undertaker first of all, who will then speak to us at the Church.

To be buried in the churchyard of St John the Baptist, Barlaston, you must either live in the parish, or die in the parish, or be on the electoral roll of that church, or have a partner already buried there.

 

This group is for furthering friendship and fellowship among women of the church and to assist at social and fundraising events at church and in the village.

We meet in the choir vestry at 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of each month, except in August and January and have regular speakers on a range of topics. We also include outings to places of interest, theatre visits and a special meal at Christmas.

New members are always very welcome - do come along to a meeting, we'll be happy to see you.

This friendly group meets between 2.00pm and 3.30pm on the second Wednesday of the month. The meeting includes a short interesting talk/demonstration by a guest speaker, a cup of tea or coffee, delicious homemade cakes and lots of sociable chat.  We have a suggested donation of £1.
Everyone welcome, come along and try us out.

The Parish Church of St John the Baptist has a four-part harmony choir which helps to lead the musical worship of two 4.00pm Sunday services each month, on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at 4.00pm.

New members are always welcome to come along and join. No experience is necessary, just provided you are able to pitch a note which is played for you and you are keen and willing to have fun!

CHOIR PRACTICE: Mondays 6.00pm in Church. Full information from our Director of Music:  alex.goldsmith96@gmail.com
