In the light of recent government statements, the church building is closed until further notice. All acts of worship in the church are suspended until further notice, and the church is closed for private prayer and to our regular user groups.
Sadly, church baptisms, weddings and funerals are not permitted for the time being. But our church continues in other forms. Services are streamed live at 10.30 a.m. every Sunday from our You Tube channel, and there is a regular flow of news, prayer requests and resources to keep us praying and growing together as God’s church.
Please use the resources in the Virtual St James area of our website, and if you would like join the church email or WhatsApp group, please use our contact form. Both our churches have a Facebook page, which is another great way to stay in touch if you are on Facebook.
We are have a contact list for the church to keep people in touch – please use the Contacts page to let us know if you want to be on this list. Please also use the Contacts page if you would like to receive our regular e-bulletins, to receive our ‘Worship at Home’ booklet. If you would value a friendly phone call, or need any help with getting shopping and essentials – or if you are aware of anyone in the
community who needs help please do get in touch.
Watch this video to find out how we’re planning to tackle this as a church community.
We are learning as we go along how to stay in contact with each other, worship together via the wonders of modern technology, and continue to pray and live as the body of Christ through this testing time. In the meantime, if you have any concerns please ring David (422286) or Ruth (579602). God bless you.
In normal times this is what our home page would say:
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!
