Help us to meet the needs of Frome!

Calling all people of Frome - from people who were born here to residents who have chosen to move to our great town, churchgoers and non-churchgoers!


Following the retirement of our Vicar, we have a fantastic opportunity to look again at our place in the Frome community and recruit a leader who can help us create a future we can all be part of, and proud of. To help us do this could you take a few minutes to answer these four questions about our town, please?

  1. What is Frome to you?

  2. What works well?

  3. What’s challenging about Frome?

  4. What are your hopes and priorities for Frome?

You can reply by:

  • clicking on the 'Get Started' button:

  • sending an email to; or

  • filling in one of the paper copies you'll find at the back of St John's Church and posting it through the letterbox of the office, which is the cottage right next to the church.

Please be assured that all replies are anonymous - we are not asking for any personal information - and that individual responses will not be identifiable in the collated results.

Your opinion really matters to us, so do please give us your thoughts - we'd love to hear from you.

The closing date is Tuesday 5th March.

Future developments at St John's
We continue to keep everyone informed about what is happening now that St John's is in Vacancy and we have no Vicar.

Following the meeting with the Bishop and Archdeacon, there has been much background work as the small group who will be responsible for putting together the Parish Profile is gathered. The Parish Profile is the document which will be read by any priests considering coming to St John’s as our Vicar. We are all being asked to contribute ideas and suggestions  - see above - as we consider our vision for the future of St John’s. And remember Bishop Michael’s instruction: 'Pray your socks off!'
