History of The Besom in Taunton

The Besom in Taunton was formed in 2005 by Mrs Nesta Long with her colleague Ingrid. Nesta remained the leader of the organisation until her death in 2016.

Nesta and Ingrid were struck by the number of needy people in the Taunton area and as a Christians felt challenged to put their faith into action by making a positive impact on their lives.

The Besom in Taunton has grown from the challenge these woman responded to and now includes Christians from a number of Churches in this area.

The Besom in Taunton is part of the national Besom’s within the UK. The history of the how the Besom was set up to become a national organisation can be found on www.besom.com.
