Helping preserve our historic church for future generations

Latest News


Any ideas?

The Charity is always looking for new members to enhance our annual income stream in order to meet the ongoing costs of maintaining the fabric of our wonderful church. Alongside this funding source however, we do very much rely on one off events to raise the bulk of the monies needed.
Since the formation of the Friends we have organised a sponsored parachute jump; a Stradivarius concert - as part of the Shipley Arts Festival; a “Pointless evening” and a golf day at Hill Barn Golf Club. All of these have been very successful financially plus providing a great deal of fun and pleasure to those that have supported us. In addition we have provided refreshments in conjunction with organisers of the Findon Sheep Fair and helped out with the Findon Parish Council AGM.
The committee is constantly looking for new ideas and events to organise or help out with and would be delighted to receive any suggestions in this regard. If you would like to discuss a possible fund raising idea then please feel free to contact our chairman Gerald Hibbs on 01903 872563 or treasurer Ian Hollyhomes on 01903 872465. All ideas will be more than welcome


The Friends of St John the Baptist Church Findon is a charitable trust which supports the restoration, preservation, repair, maintenance and improvement of Findon Church.

This includes the monuments, fittings, fixtures, stained glass, furniture, ornaments and chattels in the church and of the churchyard.

Our only goal is to secure the long-term existence of the church and its property for the enjoyment of future generations.
