St. John the Baptist (Church of England)
Nestled in the centre of Broadclyst village is the ancient Parish Church of St John the Baptist.
The church dates from the 15th century. It is built of stone in the perpendicular style.
A detailed description of the church is available from the GENUKI website.
The church also has an interesting War Memorial where, unusually, those remembered are still separated by rank.
More information is available from the Devon Heritage website.
We love to welcome visitors to our Church! We offer a variety of services to suit everyone and would be more than happy to help you find a service which most suits your needs. Visitors are especially welcome for special occasions, such as Christmas and Easter. Our Christmas Eve Crib service is always very popular - 2012 saw over 200 people join together, many in full nativity-dress!
Bishop Bob at Broadclyst - Celebration service
Music has been used for centuries in worship and Broadclyst enjoys a wide range of traditional worship through hymns, psalms and sung Eucharists, along with a more modern format during informal and family services.
Affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music, St John the Baptist has a thiriving Choir and Junior Choristers enjoy working their way up through the RSCM grades, furthering both their musical and liturgical knowledge whilst learning valuable life-skills.
Broadclyst is very proud of its Church Organ, which has recently benefitted from a major overhaul. The Organ Fund is contributed to by means of Coffee Concerts, where Musical Director John Scarfe produces a wide-ranging programme of music from well-known and less heard composers.
