Welcome to the homepage for St John the Baptist's church, Ulpha.

Our church is open at all times and you are very welcome to visit. Please leave your comments in our visitors book. 

The services at St John's will be changing in March 2024.  We will still have two services each month.  Our new schedule is for a family Communion service on the first Sunday of each month, starting at 3pm, with our regular Evensong service on the third Sunday at 6pm. 

And an added bonus... our third Sunday evening service on 18th February will be led by the Revd Vic Sekasi, and will be a Communion service.  You are all invited to attend, there will be light refreshments following the service. 

We encourage all of you with children to bring them along to the family service on the first Sunday of every month at 3pm. Of course, you are welcome to come along without youngsters and enjoy the atmosphere in our lovely church. 

If you are visiting the area on holiday, or visiting family, come along on our first or third Sundays.  They happen every month, so no excuses for missing them...  All the services in the area are advertised in the Parish Pump, available locally and online.
