Temple Methodist Church Taunton
A church that welcomes all, celebrates God’s love, offers opportunities to explore the Christian faith, seeks to serve in the world and to challenge injustice.
Please take a few moments to come in and look around our website. Its purpose is to welcome you all, whether local to Taunton, visitors or newcomers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to invite you to join us in our worship and other activities.
We seek to be available to the people of the town and surrounding area, to offer God's love in worship and through pastoral care and support.
