The civil parish fairly closely matches the ecclesiastical one and has 660 residents, divided between more than a dozen small settlements or hamlets and Stogumber itself.
There are a family-run village shop cum post office, a pub, a school and a few small businesses such as specialist retailers, but no regular large-scale employment within the parish except in farming.
This is a happening place with an annual pantomime, a village concert, an impressive horticulture show, a flower show, regular “village breakfasts”, a village Christmas dinner, dances, a village magazine and a large number of clubs. The Stogumber Gardens Open in early June attracts many visitors and brings the entire village together. Stogumber Cricket Club is one of the best village sides in Somerset, having just won West Somerset Division 1 -- again.
Within the church itself, the choir has about fifteen members (including 3-4 from other QTB parishes) and the tower has about a dozen active bellringers. The youth club presents a Nativity Tableau in and around the church each Christmas Eve.
Today’s church stands on the site of a Saxon minster.
