Welcome

Serving Christ and our Community

Welcome to St John the Baptist Church, the Parish Church of East Ayton in the Diocese Of York and part of the Church Of England. We are linked with St Martin’s Church of Seamer in a joint benefice.

Our Church building has graced the centre of the village since about 1150 (see the HISTORY link) but we are here to share the Christian Faith and tradition according to the needs of the twenty-first century.

The Church is open on most weekdays from 8.30am until at least mid- afternoon for anyone to spend a quiet moment and we have a prayer box for prayer requests which will be honoured for seven days and can be renewed.

Everyone is welcome to our services and activities so please look at this website which shows the place of our Church in the life of the local community.

PRAYER BOX

This is positioned opposite the door inside Church (cards on the shelf).  If there is someone for whom you would like prayers to be said , please complete one of the request cards. To help keep up-to-date, a new prayer card should be filled in after 14 days.
