St. John the Baptist, Great Gaddesden

St. John the Baptist, Great Gaddesden

The sign outside gives the usual information about services and clergy. Inside, I found a guide at only 50p some postcards for sale and ‘bats’ to carry about. There is a good welcome notice.There are also some Gospel Imprint leaflets. The visitors book showed only 5 visitors for the whole of May.

It is always important to show how a church is not just a heritage site but a living place of worship. Here I found a display of church life which showed plenty going on. There is a prayer request book and the usual ‘Saints and Pilgrim’s which is a feature of most churches in Herts. There is a side chapel, The Halsey Chapel, which is used for small services by the look of it. This would be a good place to use as a quiet space.

What these few words can’t convey is the atmosphere of St. John’s. This is a lovely church with a real sense of peace. All you can hear is the slow ticking of the clock. A wonderful place to visit.
