THE EDGEMOOR GROUP is a single Benefice consisting of eleven rural churches stretching from Knowstone, Rose Ash and the Ansteys to the east, across the southern edge of Exmoor to Charles and High Bray to the west. Each of our Churches has its own character and traditions but all seek to express a warm, prayerful and loving faith in the communities we serve. Here you will find information about our churches, our services and activities and how to make arrangements for baptisms, weddings and funerals.
We would love to welcome you to any of our churches. Wherever you find yourself in life, just come as you are and see what difference God can make. All are welcome, all are welcome.
Most of our churches are open for private prayer and reflection.

An important Group Meeting to begin to look at the future direction of the Edgemoor Group is to be held on Wednesday 3rd November in Bishops Nympton Church at 7.30pm. This is for every member of every congregation in the group- not just parish delegates - which will give everyone an equal say in what we will be looking for in a new incumbent.

Lord, may justice flow like a river
Reaching barren lands and sun scorched deserts
Where people feel forgotten and hopeless
Let your water of life comfort them
Where children lie abandoned or abused
Let your water of life protect them
Where communities suffer at the hands of prejudice
Let your water of life shield them
