July 2020

Services start once again at St Andrew's from Sunday, 12 July. We look forward to seeing you at 10.00am if you would like to attend.

Worship will look and feel a bit different so that we can keep everyone safe. Following national guidance there will be no singing, no gathering for coffee afterwards, no physical exchanging of the Peace and we will receive Communion standing and in one kind. You will also be shown to a seat to ensure social distancing.

After the service, we shall close the building to clean all the areas that have been used so that we can reopen for private prayer at 12 Noon until 3.30pm. The Thursday session from 9.00am until 12.30pm is unchanged.

Services will still be streamed on our Facebook page.

This website will be regularly updated.  Please look at the following pages:

Welcome to St Andrews Church, Taunton, a part of the Church of England. Our parish covers a large part of North East Taunton, including Rowbarton, Obridge, Wellsprings and Cheddon Road, but, wherever you come from, all are welcome. If you are new to the area, we are situated towards the north end of Taunton just beyond the railway station.

We aim to serve our regular congregation and wider community alike, with the worship of God, especially in celebration of the Eucharist, at the centre of its life.

We meet for worship on a Sunday at 8.00am and 10.00am and occasionally in the evening. The church is normally open for private prayer on a Monday to Friday from 8.30am until 4.00pm during the school term, or during Parish Office hours during the holidays.

We have an excellent relationship with St Andrew’s Church School across the road, which is part of the Bath & Wells Multi-Academy Trust.

A browse through this site should provide you with a wealth of information about us, but if you’d like more information, please get in touch.

There is access for wheelchair users to the main part of the church, including a wheelchair accessible toilet.

An inductive loop system is installed to assist those with hearing aids, and we can provide large print copies of the Order of Service and newsletter for those who need them.

At St Andrew’s we aim to be inclusive of the huge variety of human experience. Come as you are. Come and share with us. A warm welcome awaits.
