Sandford Church
" As we seek to work ever closer together in our churches so we seek to work with those in the wider community. "
We are two Churches united in an Local Ecumenical Partnership, tho we are, in reality we are more than that - we are one church, Sandford church with two buildings, currently one is a Methodist building and the other an Anglican one.
Sandford Schoolroom
The present church was built in 1899, the schoolroom being the original church built one hundred years earlier.  Both are listed buildings.  We have been in a Local Ecumenical Partnership with All Saints Church just down the road since 1995.  Over the years we have gradually worked closed together and now all services are united the venue being alternated between the two buildings.  We have a small congregation of about 30.  We are Fair Trade Churches and have a Fair Trade stall at most of our services.  We are part of Churches Together in Winscombe and Sandford which includes United Reform, Roman Catholics and Quakers.  We unite for Lent Lunches, Lent Groups, Week of Prayer and Women's World Day of Prayer.
 
Our services are varied with 1st Sunday H/C Anglican rite, 2nd Sunday H/C Methodist rite, 3rd Sunday All-Age Worship, 4th Sunday Morning Worship, 5th Sunday Benefice Service alternating with St James, Winscombe.
 
We have a Lunch Club which is held in the local inn once a month.  This is for the community and especially for those who live on their own and we also provide transport when necessary.
The new Care Home opened in the village in 2009 with an expected total population of around 225.
 
The care village is now up and running, it includes a Dementia care unit, Sheltered Accomodation and a Complementary Nursing Home is also being built on the site.  And is part of the St Monica's Trust.
