The City Parish of St John the Baptist stands at the heart of Cardiff City Centre.

The church dates from the 12th Century and is one of Cardiff's oldest remaining mediaeval buildings. We are next to the Covered Market and in the centre of Cardiff's main shopping area.

Cardiff Castle, the Principality Stadium, Sophia Gardens (the home of Glamorgan County Cricket Club) and Cardiff Arms Park (the home of Cardiff Blues) and St David's Hall are all within our parish boundaries as is the main campus of Cardiff University, its Chaplaincy and offices for the Welsh Government and Cardiff Council.

St John's is a Diverse, Liberal and Inclusive Church with a heart for social justice. The community that gathers here believes itself called to share in God's mission by welcoming people of all ages, cultures and traditions to worship, witnessing to Christian faith, knowing God and making God known by serving Christ in both our visitors and our neighbours.

In normal times St John's welcomes a thousand visitors each week and hosts many different celebrations for city institutions, charities and individuals. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are closed at the moment during the week.

However, we are very much active as a community. We broadcast a Livestream which is streamed to Facebook and YouTube at 4pm each Sunday. There is an intro video from 3.55pm. We also and post online on Facebook and Twitter regularly. Please visit the
Worship section of our website for details.

Connect with us. Let us welcome you into our community as a guest or as a member and let's consider the greater questions of life together.

You will be most welcome.
