The benefice is set at the foot of the Mendip hills within the Diocese of Bath and Wells.


What's on

Our benefice lies on the northern slopes of the Mendip Hills, an easy 12 miles from Bristol and Bath and eight miles from Wells. Almost the whole of the benefice is within an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and a designated Conservation Area which covers an area some four miles long and three miles wide. Cheddar Gorge is five miles away with Blagdon and Chew Valley Lakes within easy reach. 

Visitors to the benefice frequently comment on the friendly, warm welcome they receive and we feel there is a true sense of belonging in this lively rural community. A good proportion of people living in our villages support the many regular events that are held across the three villages. Details of 'what's on' appear on this homepage.

The benefice is part of the Chew Magna Deanery within the Diocese of Bath and Wells. Links can be found on our Contact page.
