Friends of the Minster

Welcome to the Minster Church of St Mary the Virgin, Axminster

Whether you are a virtual visitor, someone who lives in the Axminster parish, a regular worshipper or want to find out more about the church, Jesus and God, please explore what we have to offer online.

Axminster is a beautiful town in East Devon, internationally, and rightly, renowned for its heritage, traditions and expertise in carpet making.   The town has at its heart and centre the Minster Church - a glorious building with its own traditions and heritage going back hundreds of years.

The lovely Minster building is home to the real church - the worshipping people and community of Axminster.  It is the base for a people who worship our wonderful God, and meet for prayer, study, music, fellowship and social activities, and a place for individuals to come for quiet, reflection and personal time with God.

On these pages you will find details of so much of the life of our parish and our Axe Valley Mission Community - the partnership of our five parishes and six churches.  Please take time to find your way around the site and may God Bless You as you do so.

With thoughts and prayers
