More villagers attend church during floods in Somerset

It's been the wettest January since records began for parts of southern England. Some areas have seen twice as much rainfall as they usually would. In Somerset, plans are being discussed for the armed forces to help people who've been cut off by severe flooding for weeks and David Cameron's promised to dredge rivers.

Revd Jane Twittey, from St Peter and St Paul's in Muchelney in the country, told Premier's Marcus Jones on the News Hour there has been an increase in attendance at church services since the flooding:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
