St John the Baptist, Meldon

A Hidden Gem in Britain's ' Doubly Thankful Village'

A tiny but Beautiful Place of Worship in gorgeous and peaceful surroundings.  St John the Baptist Church is used for special occasions and fifth Sundays.


Our Story

Meldon Church is an occasionally used Church in the Upper Wansbeck Group of Churches and shares oversight with St Andrew's, Hartburn.

Our style of services tends to mirror the above aspects of beauty, tradition and community.
Traditional Music is very important and we are blessed with a fine organist. Similarly, the liturgyy is based on the traditional BCP, although beyond that, (and the music),  we are not ‘high church’.
