The Church of St. Peter and St Paul stands in a magnificent position dominating the approach to the village across the Levels from the North.
At night when floodlit it almost seems to hang in the sky. It is one of the oldest, and certainly the most impressive, building in the community which it has served for about seven centuries. The octagonal tower is unusual, though not unique, among Somerset Churches (there are others at Stoke St. Gregory and Barrington).
Its primary function is to witness to the glory of God, and it is a powerful reminder of the centrality of the Christian Gospel in our Somerset history.
Alfred's establishment of a first English Christian Kingdom began from the Island of Athelney a couple of miles to the north east more than eleven centuries ago.
In the twenty-first century the Church is maintained and used by a loyal and dedicated congregation who enjoy a rich tradition of worship, and work hard to maintain and enhance the beauty of this remarkable building.
Please feel free to join us at worship, to explore the richness of the building in your own time, or simply to use it for a time of private peace and reflection. You are always welcome.
Once again we will be collecting shoe boxes filled with gifts and treats for underprivileged children around the world.
The idea is simple, Children and adults wrap and pack shoeboxes with a range of gifts which are sent overseas to local churches who distribute them to children on the basis of need alone and with no strings attached.
Boxes need to be in North Curry Primary School on Friday 13th November or they can be brought to the 10.00am service in the church on Sunday 15th November for the traditional blessing.
Please read more for more information and alternative collection points
