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!

At the end of August, we said farewell to Rev Tony Perris and his wife Helen, who have been with us for 27 years. Tony retired at the end of August, and during his time here St. James’ has outgrown its building! We are so grateful for his dedicated, prayerful and gentle leadership.

St James Re-ordering – STOP PRESSIMG_1498

Building work on the church began on 19th September,  with completion due in March 2017. The renewed building will have underfloor heating, new seating and lighting, with the flexibility to hold more people, and a greater range of events.

During this period, only the church building is closed, with services taking place in the Church Room, Resource Centre and Abbey Community Centre.  Please note access will be through the rear door only – accessible from the car park behind the church via Long Mead. From Preston Road, take the footpath just along from church towards ASDA, and the car park is on your right.

We recently enjoyed an Away Day to the lovely village of Cerne Abbas together with our sister church St. James’.  It was a blessed occasion with the theme “Unity”.
