St John the Baptist East Markham one of the churches in The Rivers, Retford
Welcome to the Rivers, Retford website. We are a group of Rural Parishes within the Retford area and all our Churches are Grade 1 listed and have stood in the centre of the villages for many centuries.
Even though our Church buildings are ancient we seek to proclaim the Gospel in accessible ways for todays world, whilst still respecting tradition.
We hope that you will find this website useful in finding times and dates of worship that are suitable to you. As you will see some of the Churches do not have regular services each week. You are most welcome to join any service in any of the Group.
