2. I would like to support the church - how can I help? There are lots of ways people can be involved in the life of the church. Attending on a Sunday is just one example. There are fortnightly homegroups and a monthly Worship singing group. There are fund raising/community activities such as coffee mornings, sales and the church fete. There are also opportunities for people to support the church and the activities financially. This can be done online if that is easier.

Archaeological finds, including a Neolithic polished stone axe (found to the south of the current village) and a Bronze Age barrow (to the north), suggest there has been a settlement here for thousands of years. A Roman villa was discovered in 1842. The village was mentioned in the Domesday Book as Cumbertone, and clearly dates to at least the 11th century. Some houses in the village date from the 14th century.
