Wellsprings Community Church Café

Wellsprings Community Church (WCC) is a non-denominational evangelical church, situated on Quantock Road, Taunton, and a registered charity (number 1140895).

Newly built in 2020, the café is an important part of the mission of WCC as we continue to serve the local community and demonstrate the love of God through practical help and support, building relationships between us, members of the community and God. WCC has an outward community focus and the café will be linked into other existing work and new initiatives.

The successful candidate will be the first paid Café Manager and will be entering the role at an early stage in the development of the new café. This presents an exciting opportunity to help shape this venture from the beginning and see it grow with the support of the church and a team of volunteers.
