  • Somerset Vicar’s “Twin My Vaccine” campaign.

    A little while ago, Roger drew our attention to this scheme to help the world’s poorest get the Covid vaccine. It’s been an amazing success, as reported by the BBC. In fact, the £80k quoted there is out of date. As of writing this on 20th April, the Just Giving page shows £123k.

  • Church Electoral Roll Revision

    St Benedict’s Electoral Roll undergoes revision each year before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) in May. If you are not on our roll and want to participate in the APCM, you need to apply to be added before 30th April. Click here to find out how to apply.

SAFEGUARDING

Safeguarding refers to the range of plans and activities that are put in place to protect children and adults who may be vulnerable to abuse and neglect, from being harmed. Safeguarding in the church community – making our church safe for young people and vulnerable adults – is everyone’s responsibility.

Our Parish Safeguarding Policy can be viewed here.
