Quantock Villages Benefice


Welcome to the Quantock Village Benefice which consists of six picturesque parishes; each community and church has its own unique character and rich mix of worship, offering something to satisfy a range of spiritual needs. 


Please see the Keep Connected tab for a whole selection of ways to keep busy in body, mind, spirit and worship throughout these extraordinary times. 

Coronavirus – Covid -19 update 

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.  Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place.  

When you come into Church, we encourage you to wash your hands or use Hand Sanitiser. Hand Sanitiser is in short supply at the moment – where possible please bring and use your own. Or in Nether Stowey, Over Stowey and Spaxton, please use the church’s wash facilities in the church.  

Please do keep in contact by phone with people around you and consider how we might help those who feel vulnerable and alone. 

Please continue to visit our website and our Facebook Page for regular updates.
