St Mary’s and St John’s are the Church of England (Anglican) churches, serving our parishes and welcoming everyone to worship and activities. We are engaged in the life of our communities and are glad that our buildings are there for the benefit of all. Our congregations are friendly and inclusive, of all ages and backgrounds. St Mary’s worship at 10.30am is in the catholic tradition in the glorious setting of our 13th century church, with a robed choir and incense. St John’s at 9am is more informal, in our beautiful setting amongst trees and fields. We also hold a family friendly relaxed Morning Worship in The Bede House in Higham each week at 9am. We regularly hold special activities and services for children, young people and families. We would be delighted to hear from you if you’d like to know more about our worship and many weekly events, or if you are enquiring about a wedding, baptism, or funeral.  We welcome all in Christ’s name - if you are new to this area, or would like to find out more, please get in touch


We welcome all in Christ's Name

St. Mary's is a 13th Century  church unusual in that is has a double nave.

The chancel of one contains the High Altar and the other the Lady Chapel in which the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.

It is a Grade 1 listed building

and in regular use on most days.


A Christening, or Baptism, is the first step of an amazing journey with God, parents, godparents, friends, family and the Church. A lifetime of discovering more about love, faith, and hope begins - a wonderful moment to celebrate.


In addition to our Sunday services detailed below there are regular weekday services and also services for special occasions and festivals.


Marrying in church is personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful, just as you want it to be.


The Church of St. John the Baptist dates from the mid 13th Century but had rebuilding and restoration work in 1849.

It is a Grade 2* listed building and is in regular use, both on Sundays and during the week.


When a loved one dies, please contact the Rev. Michelle or Fr. Tom so that prayers may be said as part of our daily worship.
