St John the Baptist Witheridge with Creacombe
Post Code EX16 8AF
Churchwarden - Mrs Sue Caldwell

Built about 1428, but with some remains of Early English and Norman features, the building contains many notable features. These include a stone font and pulpit, a squint, many stained glass windows, a peal of eight bells and a statue of the patron saint. Historically it was the centre of the Anglo-Saxon hundred.

In the year 2000 we had an area at the back of the church refurbished and made into a kitchen area which includes a toilet and hand-washing facilities, a facility much appreciated by our parishioners and where new and old blend well together.

Regular Services:

Coronavirus Covid 19 update 1st August 2020

We are pleased to announce that the church will be open on Sunday mornings at 9.30 for a service of Holy Communion (Common Worship). We will be very restricted with numbers with a total of 14 household slots each Sunday - individual, couple or family. To control the numbers and not have to turn anyone away from the service it will be necessary to operate a reservation system. Please contact Adrian to book a place


On Wednesday afternoons from 2-4pm the church will be open for private prayer. A member of the congregation will be there to greet you.
