Meet the Team

 Vicar  – Rev. David Keen


“St James’ has been a great blessing to us as a family, and it’s so encouraging to be part of a church where people are finding faith in Jesus and growing in their faith.”

Associate Vicar – Rev. Ruth Chapman                                                                                                             Ruth joined the team as Associate Vicar on 10th January 2019.                            

As a relatively new girl to the Yeovil area, Ruth is really excited about learning more about the area and people, and serving St James’ and St Peter’s.
