Welcome to St. James’

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!

PLEASE NOTE the church will be closed from 2pm Wednesday 26th until Saturday morning (29th ) for maintenance work.  This will not affect access to the church room or the office opening.

We are looking for a new Associate Vicar! The post is 0.8 in the parish, and 0.2 in the Yeovil Deanery as a mission and training resource to local churches.

NEW: Lunchtime Communion: 12.30pm every Wednesday, a simple 30m service in the side chapel at St. James’. All welcome, this is a new service launched in 2018 for those who value time to pray during the week, or find it difficult to get to church on Sunday.


St. James’ re-opened in April 2017 after a major refit and is now open 10am – 4pm Monday to Friday and on Sunday afternoons up to 4pm, for personal prayer, peace, and space to reflect. We have a prayer chapel where prayer requests can be left, and a candle lit in memory of a loved one. All are welcome.

Details of regular services, and when and where to find us are here.
