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.
Please note although some church services and group activities have restarted they will be operating in line with Methodist Church and Government guidance during the coronavirus outbreak to reduce the risk of infection. Also not all services and activities that happened before the pandemic have restarted just yet.

COVID-19 STATUS - National Guidance:
Living with COVID - Personal choice - Personal responsibility - Caution
The pandemic is not over, people are still becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19
Even fully vaccinated people can still contract and transmit COVID-19.
If you have COVID symptoms you must avoid contact with others and get a test or medical advice.
We still need to reduce the risk to others and ourselves - many shops, public transport, venues, etc. may ask you to continue using hand sanitiser, wearing a mask and to socially distance. Think about meeting outdoors, increasing ventilation indoors, wearing a face covering in crowded areas, minimising the number proximity and duration of social contacts. Continue to wash or sanitise hands regularly and to clean surfaces touched by others.
NOTE Different rules may apply in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
