Welcome! We are the church of St. John the Baptist, the Parish Church of Needham Market with Badley, Suffolk

We have several aims at St John's:

- To worship God and make him known more.

- To serve and become known in our community.

We want to welcome more and more people into our church family and share the love and knowledge of Christ Jesus.
