About us

The Diocese of Bath and Wells is one of 41 Church of England dioceses in the country.

Through our family of parishes and schools, we’re working to change lives across Somerset. How?  By serving local people, serving God and helping to  meet the needs of today’s changing communities.

We know that as our world changes, so must we as the Church; responding at a local level to the spiritual and practical needs of the 900,000 people we serve.

With this approach, we aim to encourage confident Christian communities across our 494 parishes; communities that express joyful hope in the Gospel.
