St John the Baptist Church is the Church of England parish church for the Peterborough parish, in the bustling heart of the city centre, part of the Diocese of Peterborough and within sight of Peterborough Cathedral. The church has an active spiritual life, and also has a very interesting and important heritage. You can find out more about the history of St John’s on the St John the Baptist – Peterborough website. St John’s Church is just a few minutes walk from the railway and bus stations, and is close to several car parks. Please see How to Find Us for more details.
The St John the Baptist (Peterborough) Development CIC, known as St John’s CIC, is a community interest company with representatives from the church and the wider community that exists to further the use of St John’s for a range of cultural and social events, including classical music, talks and discussions, live theatre, and exhibitions. The CIC is chaired by Stuart Orme, head of operations at Peterborough Cathedral. Stuart became chair in Aug 2016, succeeding Dr Clive Morton OBE, who remains a director. The current programme manager is Alun Williams, who is also a churchwarden at St John’s, and Secretary of The Green Backyard.
