Sunday September 25
please join us during this season of harvest for
Holy Communion in traditional language.
Sunday October 2
1100 Holy Communion in contemporary language
and our fresh approach - The Gathering - from 1830 for coffee, tea, and cake in The Church Rooms. Thinking about God, worship, and life in a different and relaxed way. We start the vaguely organised bit at 1900 and end about 2000. Why not give it a try?
New Pilgrim course exploring Christian faith begins on Thursday October 20 at 7.30pm in Kingsbury
This small group will meet termly for modules lasting seven weeks at a time to help us explore and grow in our faith. Over forty of us across the benefice are using the new and interesting C of E study series 'Pilgrim' for exploring and deepening faith in Jesus Christ in a gentle and non-threatening way. You'll be very welcome to be part of this. Just come to the first one and make up your mind - no pressure. No previous knowledge required or expected! Please call the church office on 01935 826113 or email [email protected] // for more details.

Welcome to St Martin's
It's all about God coming in the shape of Jesus to share our life, pain, and joy in the greatest rescue mission from sin and selfishness that the world has ever known . . . and now our Heavenly Father has sent his Holy Spirit to give us the power to live for Him
Our general pattern of services:
First Sundays 1100 - Holy Communion (Common Worship - Contemporary)
1900 - The Gathering: contemporary worship in the church rooms except
in January when we take a break
Second Sundays 0930 - Holy Communion (Common Worship - Traditional)
Third Sundays 1100 - All Age Family Friendly Worship
Fourth Sundays 0930 - Holy Communion (Common Worship - Traditional)
Fifth Sundays - when they occur - are usually Benefice wide services held in rotation at Ash, Martock or here.
Please check on a specific date by using the calendar of events/services link to the right - thank you.
Please consider joining us for worship in this fine building, the origins of which lie in a much older Saxon church, now long gone. This is a place which saw the ravages of Cromwell's soldiers and later fell into a parlous state before being renovated between 1845 and 1849. We are a welcoming congregation of about twenty regulars who worship God with a mixture of liturgy and a small but enthusiastic choir. Many services at St Martin's begin with the six bells being expertly rung or at least chimed in a glorious call to worship. All morning services end with coffee and a chance to chat. Anyone wishing to join us will be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.
We don't currently have any activities for the young apart from Family Service but are looking forward to reactivating them when the need arises. However we have a toy and activity chest on a carpeted area and we are glad to see youngsters at any service. Having children present helps us remember Jesus saying that we need to let the little children come to Him so please feel welcome!
Please join us for a benefice evening of informal worship, prayer and bible teaching in a contemporary style as we seek God together. We hope it will reflect something of Christian gatherings like New Wine and Spring Harvest in its approach. First Sunday of the month at 7pm. Free refreshments, including rather good cake, available from 6.30pm, in the Church Rooms, Church St., Kingsbury Episcopi. We're aiming to finish with coffee and tea by 8.15pm. We meet on first Sundays every month except for January. We pray that this may prove to be a time of blessing by the Holy Spirit as we come to honour Jesus and grow in our life together.
