Important Information

We are in a period of interregnum without a Vicar, but have selected a new one with a young family who will be in post after installation on 11 September 2019. During this time, we can conduct baptisms, marriages and funerals using qualified members of our congregation. Please contact the Wardens for details.
We want to maintain the pattern of services as comprehensively as we can, although communion services will be limited to two Sundays a month in both our churches, conducted by visiting vicars. Please refer to the calendar for details.

A warm welcome 

full church congregation

A warm welcome to our churches at Buckland Monachorum, and Milton Combe, and an open invitation to join us at our services. We are a parish church made up of all ages.

Our aim is to help in the discovery of God’s love and forgiveness through faith in Jesus, and to grow in a relationship with him. We value the Bible as a reliable guide book, which is enlivened to our minds and hearts by the Holy Spirit.

We would like to think we are friendly and hospitable congregations in both churches, offering contemporary worship, home group nurture, and an opportunity to serve.

Other values that are important to us: prayer, and an awareness of the church overseas, with various mission links, and prayer for the persecuted church.

We are also committed to raising up ministers for ordination, and readership, – to benefit the church locally, and further afield.
Children’s, and youth gatherings are part of our weekly pattern.

The Congregation of St Andrew's Church, Buckland Monachorum

We are more informal, and innovative at Buckland, evolving both our services and the inside of the church to be more suited to modern family needs. Our prayer is for an increased, Christ-centred serving within our own communities, and a supernatural awakening to faith on the part of the many.

The Congregation of St Andrew's Church, Buckland Monachorum

Milton Combe is a small community, with a chapel-shaped Anglican church. A special welcome to all is always offered here. Services are Holy Communion and liturgical, with three Sundays based around a newer prayer book, and one Sunday from the Book of Common Prayer.
