Welcome to St John the Baptist Church, Oakdale Road, Carlton, part of:
The Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham https://southwell.anglican.org

DURING THE CURRENT CRISIS, please see our “Events” page and our “Notices” page for our response and resources. We are praying and there are live streamed services on Facebook, Monday to Friday and a Zoom service on Sunday. Please see our “Notices” page for more information.
Our services are at 10:45am on Sundays and you would be very welcome to join us anytime.
Most weeks, we have a Eucharist (Common Worship). Children are very welcome. We all remember having small children and remember that it’s not always easy! Don’t worry if they fidget, make noise or want to play in the specially created play area in the worship area. There is often Sunday School or Youth Group for older children. We’re not very loud, but we do have ear defenders for children who might feel that it is. There is also a break out space, if you or your child needs some time out, in the Lady Chapel. This is currently not heated, but let us know if you might need it and we will switch the heaters on.
On the 1st Sunday of the month, we have a bring and share lunch after the service for those who wish to stay. It’s always lovely to have visitors and new people to join us, even if you forget to bring food.
Usually, on the second Sunday of the month is an all age service. If it is school holidays, the date may change – please check our notices page. There is no Eucharist at this one, except for Remembrance Day.
On the 5th Sunday (there aren’t many), we have Café Church. This is not a traditional service.
Please do get in touch if you would like to know more.

Our Church is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people, and adults, particularly the vulnerable, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Ensuring that children and young people as well as adults are kept safe whilst in our care is an integral part of our church life. Our PCC has adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church; safeguarding policy statement’.
If you have any needs, please let us know when you come or contact us beforehand if you want to check first. The building is accessible and we have an accessible toilet. We also have gluten free wafers and wine served in a separate chalice if needed – please let us know when you arrive.
