Welcome to St Benedict’s


  • Weekday Communion

    Holy Communion is held weekly in St Ben’s on Fridays at 10am. This is a short service of about half an hour following Common Worship. Please join us then.

    St John’s also has a weekly Holy Communion service on Wednesdays at 10am.

  • Contemplative Worship on Sunday 2nd at 11am

    This week our service will be led by our reader Philippa. People have found these to be positive times of quiet worship, reflection and meditation. We will be seated in semi-circles. You are invited to join us to meet God with an open heart.

  • Ordination of our curate Kieron on Sunday 2nd

    On Sunday 2nd at 10.30am in Wells Cathedral, our curate Kieron is being ordained Deacon. All are welcome to attend.

    Kieron would love to see you at the special service of Evensong he will be leading in St John’s at 4pm that day. The Very Revd Dr John Davis, Dean of Wells Cathedral, will be preaching. Refreshments will follow.

  • Morning Prayer in St Ben’s and our Benefice

    Come along to join us in the Office of Morning Prayer held in St Ben’s on Wednesdays at 9am. Morning Prayer is also held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in St John’s at 9am. New on Fridays, a Celtic style morning office, put together by our curate Kieron, is held in St Margaret’s Chapel, also at 9am.
