St John the Baptist
The picturesque little 13th Century church of St John the Baptist lies just off the Taunton to Wiveliscombe road, from where its tower can be seen. A grass footpath runs across a flower strewn churchyard and on through the farmer’s field beyond. The church is a haven of peace and beauty, prayer and meditation. It is an enchanting venue for small weddings with seating for 75.
Our hope is to worship God, care for one another and make Jesus Christ known through example and daily living. There is always a warm welcome for visitors and newcomers, and Christians of all ages and persuasion are always welcome at the Lord’s table.
The church is now open for individual prayer during daylight hours.
Holy Cross church is at the centre of the village in more ways than one, being centrally placed opposite the village green and also at the heart of much of what goes on in the village.
<span style="font-size: 1rem;">This 14th century church has been recently modernised to include a small functional kitchen area and toilet facility. The bell tower has also been upgraded and now includes a much used bell-ringing simulator. These facilities, coupled with energies of a small but active congregation, mean that Holy Cross is regularly used by the community for a whole host of activities, including monthly breakfasts, monthly lunches, concerts, fetes and fayres.</span>
