The church of St John the Baptist in Heathfield


The church is now open for individual prayer on Sunday mornings (10 – 12) and Wednesday afternoons (2 – 4)

The picturesque little 13th Century church of St John the Baptist lies just off the Taunton to Wiveliscombe road, from where its tower can be seen.

A grass footpath runs across a flower strewn churchyard and on through the farmer’s field beyond.

The church is a haven of peace and beauty, prayer and meditation. It is an enchanting  venue for small weddings with seating for 75.


Our hope is to worship God, care for one another and make Jesus Christ known through example and daily living. There is always a warm welcome for visitors and newcomers, and Christians of all ages and persuasion are always welcome at the Lord’s table.
