Prayer Focus

June heralds in the glorious colours and scents of summer. As we smile at the blossoming countryside all around us and welcome the heat of the sun on our faces, we give thanks for the constant changing of seasons, the regrowth after each winter of rest, and the regeneration of both our surroundings and our spirit.

Flower Festival


To celebrate the parishes of Pilton, Croscombe, North Wootton and Dinder there will be an opportunity to experience the beautiful setting which each of our Parish Churches provides for a Flower Festival.
