We are a group of five Anglican parishes (Pitminster, Corfe, Churchstanton, Buckland St Mary and Otterford) just south of Taunton in the Blackdown Hills.
We are part of the Diocese of Bath & Wells
All are welcome in our churches, which are open during the day, either to attend services or for solitary peace and quiet. We seek to serve our communities in many different ways, and our Benefice Statement of Purpose can be found here.
Welcome to our new website!
We are still developing these pages and some are not yet fully functional. But we hope you'll still find some useful information, and thank you for your patience while we continue working on it.
