Our Faith

We are all part of the fellowship of Christians in Somerset and beyond.  As followers of Jesus Christ we are called to listen to his words, follow in his steps and allow him to transform our lives.

We seek to live out the Christian faith in ways that proclaim the gospel and serve our communities through our 496 parishes and 187 church schools.

In November 2019 Bishop Peter and Bishop Ruth confirmed 30 people, ranging in age from nine to nearly 90 in the Diocesan Confirmation Service at Wells Cathedral. In addition, three people were baptised by Bishop Peter.

Still not sure?

The rejesus website has been developed by the main churches in England for people to explore who Jesus was and is. The site offers an enormous variety of information, spirituality, interaction and entertainment, and is highly recommended for people who are not sure about what the Christian faith means or involves, or what they believe.

The Christian Enquiry Agency is there to assist those exploring the Christian faith, whether for the first time or revisiting it again. It provides various resources to help people on their journey towards Jesus Christ, and provides the facility to email directly with specific questions.

There are courses run across the country for people wanting to discover who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him. Try Christanity Explored or Alpha.
