We are delighted that the Somerset Community Foundation awarded us a grant to offer a Warm Welcome Space every Thursday, continuing in January and February with the exception of February 16th which is half term week. You are most welcome to come along and enjoy the company of others in a warm place with hot drinks and refreshments freely on offer.

all are welcome!

St Petrock’s is open every day from approximately 9am to 5pm and in the evenings by arrangement. YOU are most welcome to visit our church for services, private prayer, reflection, enjoyment of a long-standing place of worship, heritage research, and of course to join with others in planned events. YOU are invited simply to rest and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with biscuits knowing that there is a loo on site. Our church is fully in use and you are most welcome to join us. A full hearing loop is in operation for all events from May 2022 after we were delighted to receive a funding grant from the National Lottery Community Fund. There isn’t a church car park but it is not difficult to find a place to park in the village of Timberscombe. Church access pathways were resurfaced in September 2022 enabling accessible access to all parts of the churchyard. Our post code is TA24 7TP and St Petrock’s is approximately 3 miles further from Dunster into Exmoor National Park.

If you need to speak to someone, please contact either Churchwarden – Kate Hart 01643 841745 or Marion Jeffrey 01643 841500

Harvest Festival – School Service 29th September 2022

Our Ride+Stride+Glide fundraising tandem skydive raised an amazing £3331 for St Petrock’s and the Somerset Churches Trust in September 2021 – a HUGE thank you to everyone who supported this 10,000 foot drop!

Church Development Work

Please note that without the generous support of all our funders and supporters our community servery and accessible toilet would not have been possible, and we thank them all most sincerely. This was done officially on 3rd October 2021 when Bishop Ruth of Taunton celebrated and blessed the church. 

Our generous funders include National Churches Trust – Cornerstone Grant, Somerset Churches Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, Rank Foundation, Fairfield Trust, Exmoor Trust, Ecclesiastical Insurance, Somerset Community Foundation, Magna Housing, Timberscombe Trust, Timberscombe Parish Council, St Petrock’s Fabric Fund, St Petrock’s Bellringers, and many local community donations from those who supported our vision to keep the church alive and relevant in our community.

Fundraising is always a challenge with the need to fulfil the financial obligations of maintaining and running a Grade I Listed building. Below is a poster describing a very simple and cost-free way to make donations which are at no additional cost to yourself. It is very quick, simple and an easy way to help raise money for church funds. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Marion Moncrieff, PCC Treasurer.
