Welcome to St. John the Baptist Church, Barnet

                                                         …a church at the heart of the community, serving the people of Chipping Barnet,
                                                                            worshipping Jesus who is at the centre of our shared life together…


Marriage is a gift from God, and one of the greatest joys of  life. Jesus Christ was present at a wedding in Cana in Galilee, where he performed his first miracle, changing water into wine. Christians believe that marriage is a lifelong commitment of mutual love and respect, mirroring the love that God has for his people.

At St John the Baptist we are very keen to provide proper preparation for couples who come here to be married. We look forward to helping you plan both your wedding day and the rest of your married life together, and hope to support you not only in the short-term, but also in the long-term if, after your wedding, you remain in the parish.

If you are considering getting married in St John the Baptist, you should in the first instance contact the Parish Office who can put you in touch with one of the clergy who will explain the law as it applied to your marriage and will discuss the logistics involved in a Wedding Service in church.
