Homegroups are a way for a small group of people to:

  • study scriptures in more depth than can be achieved in a sermon – either the theme from the previous Sunday or a theme running in the homegroup
  • discuss people’s interpretation of and thoughts about the theme or Bible readings
  • pray together about anything which is on their minds and hearts


We currently have one homegroup, which runs on a Monday evening.  If you would be interested in joining the homegroup, please contact the Church Office


Axbridge Warm Spot

This runs on Mondays, in the Church Rooms - 1030-1400 from October to March; 1100-1300 from April to September - for anyone who needs some light food and company.  We are always grateful for helpers and donations of cakes: please contact the church office if you can help, or speak to Yvonne Brown at a Warm Spot.  Thank you very much.



We often run courses of bible study during Advent and Lent.  Check back here in November and January/February to see what we’re doing or check In Touch


We would also like to run an Alpha Course but there isn’t one currently planned.  If you’re exploring what it means to be a Christian, please contact the Priest-in-Charge

Christian Aid Week, 12-18 May

Prayer for Christian Aid Week 2024

Loving God, help us to hear the voices of those enduring extreme poverty. It is hard to listen to stories of pain.  Show us how compassion for others can bring healing and fullness of life for all.  Help us to understand that we are one through your love, for every human being is loved by you, beyond measure.  Loving God, you call on us to build your kingdom of justice, mercy, and truth.  It isn’t a task for the faint-hearted.  When we lose our sense of purpose, fill us with faith.  When we doubt or throw up our hands in despair, fill us with hope.  When we pass by our neighbour as though we did not know them, fill us with the love that turns us back and takes us to their aid.  In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer of thanksgiving and sending

God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, you have abundantly blessed us, your mercy knows no bounds.  We offer these gifts and commit ourselves to action, following your command to love one another.  We give thanks for the vital work of Christian Aid & for all who support this work.  May these offerings transform the prospects of those living in extreme poverty.  God of justice, mercy, and peace, send us out to serve you.  May your extraordinary love radiate through our words and actions, every day of our lives.  Amen.

Opportunities for Ongoing Support

We are registered with The Big Help Out so there are further details on their app. 

We are looking to create a team of volunteers who will maintain our beautiful churchyard. If you can spare any small amount of time at all and would like to become part of that team, please contact the Priest in Charge, Rev'd Alistair Forster, by email: rev.alistair3@gmail.com and he will get back to you. Many thanks for considering helping us make our churchyard a peaceful and beautiful place where we can 'just be' with God's creation.  Thank you so much!
