St John the Baptist is a very fine piece of Victorian architecture and probably the main sight in Loughton. It is about 20 minutes walk from Loughton station and on the 20 and 167 bus route.

This church stands just above the town centre. It is very beautiful inside and out. It was a sad occasion for me as it was a funeral but everything went well, I was very impressed. I think it very suitable for weddings too.

This church is really amazing inside, the alter reminds me of Russia and the Tsar all very gold and splendid. It has a lovely calm atmosphere. I am so looking forward to the ceremony in March 2013. Will write new review then.

This is a beautiful church and a lovely setting for a wedding. The vicar was very friendly and made the service very enjoyable, being serious and funny when appropriate.

A lovely place to worship. In particular the family service is great, which integrates the children into the service, rather than sending them away into separate rooms.
