Our Building

We have six windows with stained glass, recounting the story of Jesus in the New Testament from the Annunciation to Mary to the Resurrection.
A noted window, drawing visitors from around the world, is the Nativity by William Burne Jones, the pre Raphaelite artist.

We are normally open from dawn to dusk in winter and longer in the summer months .

We are a grade 1 listed building with a beautiful Norman entrance way built in the 12th century.
The tower is of note, having represented a fine example of Somerset 15th century stone tracery on a 1972 Royal Mail postage stamp.

Not at the church but in our Angel community centre in Langport. It operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays 12-4. The Angel Bow Street Langport
