We want to be a church that is able to contribute to the communities of Fivehead and beyond. You will see below one or two ways that we already feel we are able to serve and we would love to hear from you if there are other ways that we could be of practical help.

St Martin’s Close

We are delighted to be able to organise a short service on the second Monday of each month at 2pm in the Community Room in St Martin’s Close. We enjoy a time to sing well-known hymns, pause for prayer and consider some words from the Bible. This is always rounded off with a cup of tea and some cakes!

Taunton Foodbank

We feel privileged to be able to support the work of Taunton Foodbank. Perhaps you would like to do so too. There are details about it in the church hall, in the Stable and you can check out more on their website. Donations of food are always welcome and can be left in The Stable. If you need some help or know someone who may need some support, the church is registered to issue vouchers. You can contact us in confidence using the Contact Us page.


Helen Weld is the face of Christian Liaison for Young People. She is a part-time Youth Worker based at Huish Episcopi Academy where she supports young people and encourages connections for them  across the villages in the Academy catchment area. Her role is varied and is much valued by the school community. CLYP is supported by a large number of the local churches and we are delighted to be involved in this project.

Messy Church

In collaboration with the United Benefice of Curry Rivel, Fivehead & Swell, we run a Messy Church which meets monthly on the 3rd Monday at Curry Rivel Primary School from 3.30pm to 5.30pm. It is a great time to meet together after school where people of all ages get together to relax, learn about Jesus, make stuff and get messy then sit around tables to share a meal together. You are very welcome to join us.
