St. Michael's Church in Creech St. Michael, St. George's Church
in Ruishton and Holy Cross Church in Thornfalcon are a group
of three Anglican churches serving their villages and and the
surrounding communities. The villages lie in an area some 5
kms east of Taunton in the county of Somerset.
Across the three churches we provide a variety of worship styles for young and old, sometimes as
separate congregations and sometimes joining together to celebrate the glory of God.

Every night in Advent, between the 1st and 24th December, a different
house or community building in Creech St Michael will decorate and

see them. Maps of our trail will be available at Creech School Christmas Fair and can also be found
at our local churches and a number of other local venues, or can be downloaded here or from our
