Minster Organ Appeal

Please support our organ appeal! Have you been to a Baptism, Wedding, Funeral, Carol Service or Civic Service in the Minster? Do you love the sound of traditional organ music? Our organ, which provides a backdrop to many Church and community events, is in need of repair. We have already raised over £3,000 thanks to the generosity of the local community. Please help us in our effort to preserve this wonderful instrument by supporting our fundraising events, or by sponsoring a pipe (over 800 still left to choose from!) for yourself, your business, a friend, family member, or in memory of a departed loved one. Pipe sponsorship starts from just £10. Please contact the Church office for more information 01460 57811 or email Thank you!

We are looking for collectors to walk the procession and collect at this year's carnival on Saturday 5 October. If your group or charity can provide 4 or more collectors we will give back 25% of what you collect to your group or charity, as long as your are within a 15 mile radius of Ilminster. If you are interested please message our Facebook page or email us at
