Rook Lane Etching

Built in 1707 for the Independent Meeting known as Rook Lane Congregational Church, and occupied by them for over 260 years, the building is now home to NVB Architects and the Rook Lane Arts Trust.

Although no longer in possession of the old building, Rook Lane Congregational Church still exists today and is a member of the Congregational Federation (nationally), and of the CF South West Area (locally).  It is also in membership of FACT (Frome Area Christians Together).

Normally the church meets as an “all age Sunday School” in the Frome Cricket Club at 10.30 am on Sunday morning.  On the 3rd Sunday of the month we can usually be found, again at 10.30 am, in the Blue House where we hold a more formal and traditional Sunday service.

Occasionally we hold joint services with other churches, sometimes in our venues and at other times in theirs.  Once or twice a year a joint FACT Service may be held and we would normally join in these also. For details of any variations see the Events page.

The Church has traditionally, (certainly since 1795), concentrated on work involving youth; through its Sunday School; through the local and National Sunday School Union (latterly NCEC now Christian Education); through support for the London Missionary Society (now CWM); and latterly through People Against Poverty’s work in Nepal supporting Education.

The Christian Ethos of “Love Thy Neighbour” is manifest by its work with the Sick and Elderly (Rook Lane Sick Man’s Friend Society); through regular monthly support to the Frome Food Bank; sharing in the work of the Frome Churches in providing a weekly Service for patients in the hospital; regular giving to The Leprosy Mission and other Social Responsibility activities.  Individual members can also be found working in Oxfam, hospital visiting, working with Royal British Legion etc.

If you love the Lord Jesus Christ, (or are seeking Him); if you have not found a fellowship in which to share, why not give us a try. You will be made most welcome.
