August 2022 NEWS

It has been lovely to see so many faces in church over the past weeks, despite the holiday season and the seaside days. We have had so many people in the Priory Room following the services that we may need to purchase more tables! We have so many new activities to look forward to and we hope you will share with us.

The Lost Priory of Wilberfoss

We enjoyed an interesting evening with archaeologist Cecily Spall we gave a very interesting presentation about the Lost Priory of Wilberfoss with new evidence to prove that the Priory is not lost, it is here and still in use. The Church is open each day and you are very welcome to visit. Our thanks to Cecily for all the hard work and the time devoted to us, 


What is Alpha? The Alpha course is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome.

We will be hosting ALPHA at the end of September for 11 weeks in the Priory Room at Church at 7pm. Confirmed dates to follow. This is an opportunity to ask all those questions you have in the back of your mind. There is no charge for this opportunity. Interested? You can contact us on any of the numbers listed below.


St John the Baptist Church is very keen to support the children of our parish to ensure that they have every opportunity for a safe and happy childhood. We want them to grow into confident adults with strong moral standards. Sport of all kinds encourages team work, a healthy lifestyle and lasting friendships. With this in mind, St John the Baptist Church, Wilberfoss is a sponsor of the MAVERICKS. Go with God’s Love, Shine Bright and reach your goals in life.

Messy Church

Messy Church is coming to Wilberfoss in the near future.  Messy Church is a way of being church for families it is open to all ages. It is not a craft group but it may well involve some craft.  As with ALL church activities we have to ensure that we have measures in place so that families can enjoy the activities safely. So, we have updated our safeguarding training and with God’s help we will be ready for action very soon.  More information will be available soon so watch the church notice board and face book pages.

Held on the 1st Saturday of the month between 10.00 and 12 noon. Wonderful cakes, bacon butties, coffee, tea and friendship. All are welcome to come and share.


We are taking a well-earned break during August. We will be back in September ready for action (well chat and cake anyway). All are welcome and we have a huge supply of jigsaws for you to borrow.
