Welcome to St. John the Baptist Church, Lakefield, Ontario.  We are a church that includes both traditional Anglican liturgy and contemporary forms of Anglican worship. 

St. John the Baptist Church Lakefield

The first Anglican church (then called Church of England) in Lakefield was Christ Church, a lovely small stone church which was opened on Christmas Day in 1854. It wasn't long before the congregation outgrew Christ Church. In 1864, the decision was made to build a new church building rather than enlarge Christ Church.

Rev. Peter Gachira is our Incumbent. He holds an M.A. from the Virginia Theological Seminary and has previously led congregations in the Diocese of Virginia and the Diocese of Nairobi.
