Children are welcome at any of our services.


YOS is a group of young people from all four parishes that meets on the first Sunday of each month at 6.00pm in Dinder Village Hall. New members are welcome.

The Friends of St Mary’s Croscombe has been set up to preserve this unique and beautiful building at the heart of our vibrant community. Without your support, the costs of maintaining the church building could not be met.  We welcome our Friends from the village, the South West and all over the world!
