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.
Thanks to the Beast from the East we had to cancel last month's market but it's back in the Village Hall for April on Saturday 7th April 9.30am - 11.30pm. We have new stalls for 2018 and a wide range of foods, plants and crafts all from local producers and refreshments too. See you there!
The Spring flowers in the churchyard are a picture at the moment. The church and churchyard are special places in the village that everyone can appreciate. Can you help us keep them this way?
On Saturday 24th March from 9.30am until 12.00 we are holding our annual spring clean up day and it would be great if you could spare us an hour or two to help. No special skills required, just turn up! Why not treat yourself to the WI soup and pud lunch in the Pavilion afterwards!
Everyone is welcome at the "soup and pud" lunch on 24 March in the Village Hall.
12 noon to 2.00pm
After another spectacular sell out concert on 11 October 2017, we are delighted to announce that the remarkable choir from St Petersburg will return to North Curry in 2018.
