About Us

The Church of St Nicholas was built in approximately 1865 to 1868, although the tower had to be demolished and rebuilt following damage caused by vibration from the engines of the US Navy Liberators and Catalinas based in Dunkeswell during the 2nd World War.

We have a friendly and welcoming congregation and a strong community spirit. We are open to suggestions from both church members and non-church members to enhance our worship and evangelising.

Long standing link with the Methodist Chapel with whom we hold joint Bible Study Groups and quarterly United Services, including the Annual Covenant Service.

Apart from other ‘Special Services’ our church is one of the few who still hold a service for the Battle of Britain. We also hold an annual American Memorial Service to remember those who served in Dunkeswell during the Second World War.

St Nicholas has a strong group of 6 teams who lead lay services and they continue to grow in confidence.

It is hoped to create Lay Pastoral Teams in the near future.

We hold a Healing Ministry Service once a month which is of exceptional value in developing our spiritual lives together, and our caring for those in need.

Church members are involved in Bible Stories with the pre-school.

Some of the congregation are members of the newly formed Dunkeswell Community Choir. We are currently looking for choir leaders.
