imageHello and welcome from me, Mary, Rector of our South Quantock churches benefice.

I joined the Benefice at the beginning of August 2016.  You can contact me via the Benefice Office, or directly at the Rectory: or 01823 410089.


Kevin Davenport, Reader

Hi,  I am a Reader in the Benefice, (which is Church Of England speak for Lay Minister!).  I take services in all of our churches as required, but mainly at St. Augustine’s, West Monkton, which is my ‘home parish’.  I also get involved with Collective Worship at our Cheddon and West Monkton Primary Schools, and I’m looking forward to involvement with Heathfield School students in this new academic year.

 I am a retired chartered surveyor, and presently Project Leader for the St Augustine’s Heritage Project, which includes the repairs to the church, extending the car-park, constructing a new toilet and creating a Heritage Trail encompassing all four churches, our schools and other venues of interest in our Benefice.

 I conduct Home Communions with the house-bound on request, and we welcome the opportunity to ‘bring the church to you’.

I can be contacted on 01823 413628 or  by e-mail
