Axbridge is exploring a vision to use the church
building as a community resource - if possible to house a credit union and community computer, alongside a regular drop in centre
for coffee and advice on a range of available services.
Along with Cheddar and Wedmore churches we support the Kings of Wessex
schools Christian worker.
On the 4th Sunday of each month we meet to worship, to seek God’s will for his church in the town and to
pray in a new congregation.
A large hall is available underneath the church where there is also a small kitchen area. We
have recently removed some pews at the back of the Church to create a hospitality area and look forward to making a similar space
at the front for more creative worship to allow freedom of movement for those with wheels.
Members of the church also involve
themselves in the Town council and other groups and events that happen here.
The church has many well wishers in the town and through
them is able to raise funds for a nominated charity each year. This includes an Anniversary coffee morning held in the church hall,
and a Christmas coffee one held in the town hall. A very popular ploughman’s lunch is offered in the garden of one of our members,
and the church runs a stall at the ‘Somerset showcase’ each September.
The proceeds from all our fundraising events are divided between
the church and the charity for the year.
The church was built in 1850; at a cost of 500 pounds. It is a pleasant Gothic style building with a fine hall underneath the main
