Welcome to St.Mary's Church Wedmore!

This historic church was mainly built in the 15th.Century but parts are as old as the 11th.Century with a record of a church being on the site even earlier. There is an informative guide available for visitors. You can enter the church every day during daylight hours as a visitor, to pray or just to sit quietly.

We love to welcome visitors and locals at all the services shown on Events page. Children are very welcome! There is a lively Junior Church most Sundays and also a creche every Sunday. The children come to the communion rail and tell us about what they have learnt after each service. Coffee after the service is a great opportunity to meet friends old and new. If you are new please introduce yourself to us. 

Don't miss the popular Coffee( and cakes!) morning in Church on the first Saturday of each month run by members of the Church community. This is a great opportunity to meet other local people, find out about what is going on and enjoy our great Fairtrade coffee!

Our Vicar Richard Neill and his wife Lisa, and children Iona and Melissa joined us in 2008. Between July 2010 and December 2013 we welcomed Curate Eddie Wills with his wife Julie and children Edward and Amaryllis. The ministry team is completed with Lay Reader Michael Gelder, Associate Priest Revd Paul Kingdom and Assistant Curate Revd Joy Hawse.

Do join us in our worship or at one of our community events. We would love to see you!
