Welcome to the website of St. James’ Church, Yeovil.
We’re a relaxed, friendly church for all ages in the North West of Yeovil. We believe in helping people to encounter God, to live out their Christian faith in daily life, and to serve and bless our community. Regular Sunday worship is at 10.30am.
Our sister church St. Peters serves the Westfield area of Yeovil.
We hope you enjoy browsing this site and find what you’re looking for. Please use the ‘contacts’ links if you want to know any more. You can also find us on Facebook. Or come along to one of our services, we’d love to see you!
Coming Soon to St James’!
The autumn always has some key moments to stop and take stock:
– St. James lit up in pink & blue for Baby Loss Awareness Week (9-15th October). We were also part of the ‘Wave of Light’ 7pm-8pm on the 15th, with church illuminated and open for families to light a candle in memory of a child.
– The 100th anniversary of the Armistice is on Sunday 11th November, with a 10.15am service at St. James, then an Act of Remembrance at Preston Rd War Memorial at 11am.
If you want to know more about the men commemorated on our War Memorial, there’s a special book just inside St. James main door with details of their lives. We also have several War Graves in the churchyard, and a new leaflet in the church gives a guide to these servicemen and what we know of their story and their sacrifice.
