The Church of St. John the Apostle, Sheepscombe, Diocese of Gloucester

Our simple but attractive church was built by the villagers in the 1820s and is one of six churches in the Beacon Benefice. The church is open every day to welcome anyone who wishes to enjoy its peaceful atmosphere.


St. John’s is an active, thriving Church which plays an integral part in village life, including the school. Many church members are actively involved in local, national and international charities.  The Church provides both financial and practical support where possible.
