Church Services

Bishop Ruth dedicating our new facilities and improvements at a Benefice Service on Sunday 3rd October 2021
Sunday Services ARE detailed below. 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. There isn’t a church car park but it is not difficult to find a place to park in the village of Timberscombe. 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 – John Gratton 01643 841490 or Marion Jeffrey 01643 8415

Remembrance Day

Children from Timberscombe School in St Petrock’s Church to pay tribute on Remembrance Day, with members of the PCC there to observe their reflection and thoughtfulness.

 

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.
