The Team Ministry of the Church is led by the Reverends Andy Bryant, Christine Judson, Tina Hodgett and Jeremy Putnam. We serve a rapidly growing town and community. Numerically we are one of the largest churches in the Anglican Diocese of Bath and Wells. Many have commented on the friendliness of the welcome they receive at our Church. We hope you find the same welcome if you have opportunity to join us. The present St Peter's Church was built in 1320 and has a particularly attractive garden developed at the Millennium. We sponsor a Church school, St Peter's and jointly with the Methodists, Trinity School. St Peter's is the centre of Ladies Bell Ringing in the UK.
