Welcome to the website for St John the Evangelist's Church, Pauntley, Gloucestershire. 

St John's is an ancient Church in a rural setting; our regular congregation is small but we are always pleased to welcome visitors, whether from the area or outside of it.

Here you will find dates and times of regular Services and forthcoming events, some of the history of our Church, news and information about the Parish that surrounds it, together with contact details should you wish get in touch.

Set amongst fields with no village nearby, the Church looks as though it has never witnessed ambition or conflict, but this is the Church where Dick Whittington would have been christened and attended services in his youth - yes, he was a real person, not just a story book character - and which bears the scars of musket fire, damage inflicted during a Civil War skirmish between Royalists and Roundheads.

Even today it attracts visitors from around the world as well as all parts of Britain: it must be a fond memory to those who have emigrated, as many of their descendants come to visit the place they have heard remembered so vividly.
