St John the Baptist church is the home of the Church of England in the parish of Farrington Gurney.

We have a small and welcoming community, made up  both of village people and those who travel specially to worship in this beautiful and friendly church.

St John’s has regular social events in the village, and meets regularly for worship with our friends at Farrington Gurney Methodist Chapel.

Whether you are new to the area or just visiting – or are at a point where you would like to engage more with the church – please come to a service or chat to the vicar, Guy Edwards.

How to find us

To find St Johns from the A37, turn into Church Lane ( A left turn travelling from Bristol, a right turn travelling from Wells).

This is Church Lane – follow this all the way to the cattle grid, across the field and into the church car park.

From the A362, turn into the lane where Farrington’s Farm shop is, drive 300 yds, past the Manor house, and then turn right in into a small lane between tow stone wall.  Take second turning right in a few yds at the T-junction, and follow the road over a cattle grid, across the field into the car park.
