Protecting our natural environment and God’s creation is integral to the response to our Christian calling. All the land with which God has blessed us provides opportunities to encourage, support and connect wildlife. (Taken from the Diocese of Bath and Wells website).

Wilder Churchyard

To encourage, enhance and protect native species of plants, and to allow our churchyard here in Milborne Port to become a more biodiverse haven for pollinators, it was decided early in 2022 to experiment with adopting a lighter mowing regime in certain areas of the churchyard, and to see what happened as a result.
