Welcome to the website of St Cuthbert's Church at the Heart of Wells, Somerset


    St Cuthbert's Church in SummerSt Cuthbert's is the largest parish church building in Somerset. We are so big, and have such a prominent position in the heart of the city of Wells, that visitors often think they have reached the Cathedral as they arrive through our mediaeval entrance porch.

    The church is open every day of the week, and provides a friendly place to meet and make friends, with a small coffee bar open every morning Monday – Saturday. Others like to visit or just pop in for some spiritual peace and refreshment.

    Sunday worship is the central focus of our spiritual life, and we continue the traditional Anglican pattern of a weekly 8am simple communion service, with our main Sunday worship at 10am. This is usually a choral Eucharist or Holy Communion service, with approximately once a month an All Age service.

    Like all Church of England churches we are pleased to welcome anyone from any part of the worldwide Christian church to join with us in our Sunday worship – if you are coming to worship with us for the first time do make yourself known to the welcome team at the door as you arrive. Everyone who normally shares in the bread and wine of their own church is welcome to join us here.

    People from a wide variety of spiritual backgrounds, and several different nationalities, have been brought together in this place with many others from closer to home to explore what faith in Jesus means in this 21st Century, conserving the strengths of Anglican tradition while looking for ways to explore faith and emerging Christianity.

    Wherever you come from – near or far – and wherever you are on your spiritual journey – we hope you will feel a warm welcome when next you visit us.
