Woodlands St Katharine

Set in a peaceful rural area between the town of Frome and the Longleat estate our church was built in 1714 by the Thynne family of Longleat 'for the convenience of the parishioners' who previously had to walk or ride all the way into Frome town centre to find their parish church.

We trust that visitors in this generation find peace and tranquility when they visit us.

Our services are usually on the first and third Sundays of each month at 11.00am

Our ancient 'mother' parish of Frome St John the Baptist has weekly services - see www.stjohnsfrome.com for more information


The Parochial Church Council (PCC) working with the Joint Church Council we have with Frome St John the Baptist has adopted and works to implement the House of Bishops’ Safeguarding Policy ‘Promoting a Safer Church’.
