The Church of St John the Baptist is an Anglican church in the town of Royston, Hertfordshire, England. The nave and aisles, which were built c. 1250, originally formed the quire and sanctuary of a large church belonging to the Augustinian Priory of Royston. It was converted to a parish church following the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

On 9 December 2018 the church was severely damaged by a fire.
