St. John's Church, Egham
St. John's Church, Egham or Egham Parish Church. or St. John the Baptist, Egham (or simply St. John's Church) is an evangelical Anglican church located in the centre of Egham, Surrey, in the Diocese of Guildford. There are approximately 350 members on the Electoral Roll and a usual Sunday attendance in the region of 450. The incumbent (Vicar) is the Revd Jeff Wattley.
Its purpose is reflected in the Church logo: ‘Transforming our Community’ - its goal is not just for the members but to reach out and make an impact on the community. Community programs include a Christmas soup kitchen and an active Besom group, as well as the normal Guides, Brownies, and other youth work.
The current church, of Georgian architecture, was built in about 1812. There has been a church on the site since about 1150 and the lychgate precedes the current building. John Wesley preached in Egham during his English ministry in about 1771.
The grave of the loser of the last English duel, which took place in nearby Englefield Green, is in the churchyard.
