Latest Pew Sheet

The Church at Bishops Caundle is part of the Three Valleys Benefice and has been at the centre of the community for almost a 1000 years, sharing both joyous occasions and sad times with the village. Unlike most churches Bishops Caundle Church does not have any dedication and is known simply as Bishops Caundle Church.

Development Project

Formulated in 2018 the Development Project has the following goals:

  • To make the church a much more flexible and usable space
  • To address vital issues to do with safety, accessibility and disability
  • To bring the building up to a much higher standard of comfort
  • To provide the facilities that will make its use a pleasure
  • To repair the fabric of the building, particularly the roof

Development Appeal

Launched in 2019 the Development Appeal is looking to raise £450,000 to carry out the work required under the Development Plan. To date £16,500 has been raised via donations, events and other activities.
