Saint Johns used to be the Village Church for Parson Drove, but it was taken out of service in 1974 when it passed into the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. It is a Grade 2* listed amazing building and well worth a visit. The churchyard is the resting place for a lot of people, including John Peck a landowner, renowned for his detailed diaries of life in the fens.
There is a newly formed Friends of Saint John group, and it is our aim to bring this amazing building back to life, with various events for all the community, local and further afield. All proceeds from our events will go towards the upkeep, maintenance and support of the church, working with the Churches Conservation Trust.
If you would like to get involved with the Friends group, please get in touch. We are always looking for volunteers to help out with all sorts of things, such as mowing, strimming, planting, pruning, cleaning, cooking, baking, making, selling, organising, fund-raising, you name it - we need it! Just drop us an email at
Or check out our Facebook and Instagram pages @saintjohnsparsondrove
If you're looking for a different sort of venue for your event, instead of the usual village halls and community centres, the church is available for you to hire for your own function. The church and churchyard also make an excellent backdrop for photo-shoots, film -shoots, as well as arts and crafts or even cooking classes. The Friends Group can provide you with refreshments or more substantial catering. For more information please just get in touch, we look forward to hearing from you.
AND YES! The church is available for weddings!
AND YES! The Friends of St John can sort it all for you!
