To delight in God’s love and share it with others

South Door

God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in the Spirit and in truth. John 4:24

Work began on the building of St John the Baptist, Burford in 1175. Over the past 800 years the building has been added to, altered and expanded. Hundreds of thousands of people have celebrated, grieved, prayed and worshipped here. Over the centuries the world has changed in such a way as to be unrecognisable to those who laid and carved the first stones. However, the purpose of this building remains the same as when it was first built: to glorify God.
