The Protestant church of Deinum or Saint John the Baptist church[1] is a religious building in Deinum, Netherlands, one of the medieval churches in Friesland.

It is an early 13th-century building with a tower that dates from 1550-1567.[1] The historic pipe organ was built in 1865 by Willem Hardorff from Leeuwarden.[1] The church was originally a Roman Catholic church dedicated to Saint John the Baptist but became a Protestant church after the protestant reformation. It is listed as a Rijksmonument, number 28586.[2]
