The Churches of Shipham Parish
Shipham and Rowberrow belong to the United Benefice of Axbridge.  Thanks to a strong team of ordained and lay ministers, a service is held every week at all three churches.  Whenever there is a fifth Sunday in the month,
a United Benefice service is held at one of the churches, when everyone in the Benefice joins together for worship.
