Welcome to the Christian Community serving the Parishes of Abbas & Templecombe, Henstridge and Horsington.
Thank you for visiting our website. Our prayer is that you find what we are about accessible, welcoming and engaging in your pursuit of a daily living faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
In order to keep one another safe, we follow our Safeguarding Policy (See Safeguarding on our menu). The Dioceses of Bath & Wells's Safeguarding pages also contain vital links and information to help keep one another safe. We aim to be an inclusive community that looks after the well-being of the other. With regards to Covid Pandemic, this means we ask that anyone with Covid symptoms do not attend any of our gatherings on site. We encourage social distancing and the use of hand sanitising when we gather, as we ensure the circulation of fresh air. Face coverings are recommended indoors, but not obligatory. Hospitality will be extended with the emphasis on hygiene and social distancing in mind. For those who want extra space around them when we gather, please collect and display the motif offered as you enter to remind others of your needs.
Our focus at present is on helping one another encounter God daily to be Christ-like in our community. Romans 12:1-2. "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
