Welcome to St. James’

church3St James’ is 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!

*Important*: St James’ is hosting the funeral of Rhys Powell, Wednesday 27th September 1.30pm. We are expecting the church to be very full – please allow plenty of time to park and find a seat. We will do our best to fit everyone in, and there will also be a relay of the service into the church room annex. There is some parking behind the church, and the local ASDA car park is 3-4 minutes walk away. If you are parking near houses, please park considerately and leave plenty of access to drives and for emergency vehicles. There is a book of condolence in the church prayer chapel, which is open daily 10am-4pm, for anyone who would like to record a memory or a message for Rhys’ parents Jenna and Tracey.
Donations will be taken on the day for the Teenage Cancer Trust and St. Margaret’s Somerset Hospice.
