St John the Baptist Church
Whitchurch Hill is a village in the Chiltern Hills and is about 5.5 miles west of Reading. The village has a pretty church, St John the Baptist, designed by Francis Bacon in 1883. It was founded as a sister church to St Mary’s for the people who lived and worked in Whitchurch Hill in the 1800s. It is a much smaller church, with an intimate feel; both churches are united in one parish, with one PCC. We enjoy family worship twice a month at St John’s, with a small band a monthly Sunday School within our All Age Worship Service. Most of our baptisms take place at S John’s. We have special acts of worship at Harvest, with a Harvest Supper in Goring Heath Halls across the road; at Remembrance with an annual Act of Remembrance on the hill and at Christmas with our ever-popular 9 Lessons & Carols, we well as a Christmas Morning Communion Service.
