About

The church of St John the Baptist, Outwood dates from 1869 and had its own vicar until 1980. It was then linked first with Horne, and then South Nutfield, before in 2015 becoming part of the Windmill United Benefice with Horne and Burstow, a natural and happy development for the parish. The church serves the village of Outwood with regular Sunday services, baptisms, weddings and funerals and through its involvement in the life of the village (service to celebrate 150 years, picture below).

COSTS OF MISSION AND MINISTRY

St John's, like all parishes in the Church of England, is responsible for its own expenses which include not only the upkeep of an historic Grade II listed church and the nearby Church Room, but also the cost of a full-time Rector in the Windmill United Benefice and all aspects of mission and ministry.

The Diocese of Southwark, of which we are part, is moving towards parishes meeting the cost of their own full-time vicar or rector. This is why a large and important part of our expenditure is a contribution to the Southwark Parish Support Fund which covers the costs of clergy stipends (salaries), training and support. Currently the Windmill United Benefice is not meeting the full cost of its Rector and is therefore being subsidised by the giving of people in other parishes in the Diocese.

At St John the Baptist, Outwood we need to increase our contribution to the Parish Support Fund, on top of the expense of maintaining our church building and churchyard and meeting the costs of mission and ministry in our community.
