Church of England

St. Martin’s Church, Fivehead and St. Catherine’s Church, Swell.

The two churches are part of The United Benefice of Curry Rivel, Fivehead and Swell under the leadership of the Revd Scott Patterson. The Benefice is in the Ivelchester Deanery, the Archdeaconry of Wells and the Diocese of Bath and Wells.
 We welcome Christians of other denominations and none, as well as seekers and visitors. We aim to grow in personal relationship with God, through his son Jesus Christ, and in supportive relationships with each other. We value prayer and Bible study, seek God’s spiritual gifts and his courage in sharing the gospel with others.
Both churches are open during the day. You are always welcome to visit and to enjoy quiet prayer and reflection. Visitor guides are available at both Churches.
