Church of England Diocese of Bath & Wells Horsington

St John the Baptist

Welcome to the Christian Community serving the Parishes of Abbas & Templecombe, Henstridge and Horsington.

We do church in a variety of ways. And in the current Pandemic, we try and do what we do as safely as possible. This means that the use of our church buildings may need to change at short notice. It also means that we require everyone accessing our church buildings at any time to adhere to all the Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time, including the wearing of facemasks.

We have weekly bible studies, and prayer meetings Monday through to Saturday. On Sundays, we have an on-line service in the morning, focused on the Bible (via Zoom), and in the evening we gather in one of the church buildings in the Parish for a Communion service. During the week, we run bible studies via Zoom. Details of all these and how to join in, and other events, are on the website under Services and Events.

What we can and cannot do, what we may and may not do, can change quite rapidly and at short notice. This website is usually up to date, but we apologise in advance in case we have not had chance to make the changes due to circumstances beyond our control. Sightseeing and personal research has had to be given a low priority due to the demand on the church buildings under Covid-19 restrictions. So please do phone a couple of days in advance to ensure we are able to accommodate you. </span>

I hope you find something which will support you in your journey with, or at least towards, the Lord Jesus Christ.

We would love to hear from you, so do leave a message via the website or contact me direct on telephone 01963 363832 or on email [email protected]

Yours in Christ

Rev Kevin Rogers
