Our Church has a fascinating history and we will be delighted for you, and your friends, to come and explore. We operate as a village church which is open to all. Details of our regular acts of worship can be found by clicking the services button. You are welcome to come along.
We house the Battle of Sedgemoor Visitor Centre – and interactive display which opened in March 2017. This is worthy of a visit in it’s own right. It is suitable for all ages and, as with the rest of the building, is free to enter.
When you are in the building you can see our world renowned mediaeval ceiling which was carved in 1582. We have a memorial chapel in respect of the RAF station which opened in World War 2 and closed many years ago. We have some exquisite mediaeval bench ends and some fantastic twentieth century wood work.
The twenty first century has seen the addition of toilets and a café area. If the café is not open you are welcome to picnic here.
This is an ideal place for children to explore a “mega-structure” which forms part of the creative curriculum for primary school children. It is an ideal place for adults who wish an accessible approach to key events in English History. It is an ideal place for those seeking peace and tranquillity. Despite the slightly gory history of this building it does exude a calm presence and enables many to touch with God as they wish.
Please come and see us – we are open from 10.00 – 16.00 every day. Please explore our web-site to find out more. Please join us at our café – which, as visitor numbers increase, will be open more frequently.
Please join us for worship – every Sunday at 10.30 with refreshments afterwards.
We do look forward to seeing you soon.
Following an extensive re-ordering program the Church services resumed on 17th July 2016.
