Crewkerne and Misterton Baptist Church is a relatively small fellowship and one which has seen considerable change in recent times. However, we have a wide range of regular worshipers from a number of different backgrounds. Those who come to us are often surprised by the diversity of worship and usually impressed by the friendliness they find. It is genuinely a church that welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds.
There are activities for everyone to join in, and opportunities for spiritual growth and developing friendships. The Church takes seriously its responsibility to serve, and bring the good news of the Christian Gospel to the local community. As a smaller church, there are things we do not do and cannot offer, but CMBC is a fellowship which provides a genuine and appreciated home for many people.
We work closely with other churches in Crewkerne through Crewkerne Churches Together (CCT) for special events during the year, and we host monthly Praise and Healing Services. For details, please see the What’s on page.

For the ladies
JUST4LADIES is the name of a group that we run just, as it says, for the ladies! This group usually meets at the Crewkerne Church on the first Thursday of every month, and activities include crafts, sewing and knitting, and preparing shoeboxes for distribution to less fortunate adults and children overseas.
CMBC is a friendly church and we like to get together from time to time to show hospitality to friends and family of church people. Our harvest meals are an annual event when the ladies of the church produce a veritable feast for all to enjoy.
There has been a Baptist Church in Crewkerne since 1820, when a group of local Christians began to worship together in the building that was the church hall. The church was extended in 1830 and 1880, and the school rooms were added in 1932.
In 2010-11, the church sanctuary area was renovated completely, providing a multi-purpose area, new office, quiet room, servery and disabled toilet, with enhancement of the forecourt area of the buildings.
There was a Baptist place of worship in Misterton until 2016, when the Chapel was closed. We still maintain contacts in the village, most recently with a Shade and Shelter Marquee serving refreshments and providing activities at the Village Fete.
