St John the Baptist, Cookham Dean

Encounter God through warm hospitality and inspired worship

Study and Insight




We run study courses for a wide range of people, from those starting off on their journey of faith to those who want a deeper insight into the Christian faith and personal development of knowledge and understanding. Regular features are our Lent courses and Autumn bible study course.

Details of all these are publicised in Pew News and the Parish Magazine.

Children’s Confirmation 2019

Parents - if your child is:

· In year 6 or above

· Is a regular, committed church attender at either/both St. John the Baptist or Holy Trinity in our Benefice

· Would enjoy being part of a group for Bible study and learning about discipleship

· May be thinking about confirmation in 2019

Then please contact me so that I can coordinate dates/times for classes. We are awaiting the date for the 2019 confirmation service within our Benefice to be released to us. All confirmation dates are subject to the Bishop’s availability.

All enquiries for children’s confirmation to Rev’d. Helen


We also organise pilgrimages to both local and more distant destinations. Trips have been organised to Rome & Assisi, Wales, West Country, Walsingham, the passion play at Oberammegau held every 10 years, the Holy Land, and in 2017 to Malta. See Photo Gallery here.
