The Churches of Shipham Parish
Shipham and Rowberrow belong to the United Benefice of Axbridge. Due to the recent retirement of our Rector, the Revd Tim Hawkings, we are currently unable to provide services every Sunday at all three churches. Please see the church notices page for the services available.
