Wivey and the Hills represents the Church of England parishes of the United Benefice of Wiveliscombe, Chipstable, Raddington, Clatworthy, Huish Champflower, Brompton Ralph and Tolland, in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. The Benefice is in the North Tone Local Ministry Group and in the Taunton Archdeaconry.
We are a friendly and active group providing regular Sunday services in a range of different forms across the area as well as providing an active network of service and groups throughout the week across the benefice. We have a number of children and youth groups together with a number of different music groups and study groups.
We welcome all newcomers with open arms a friendly smile and a relaxing cup of tea.
Above all we believe that the mission of church is far more important than the church itself which is why we are so passionate about reaching out into the community, working together with other groups and being an integral part of the community. It is still a mission that is growing for us but one which we hope to develop with Christ.
