St Michael and All Angels

The Parish Church of St Michael and All Angels

St Michael and All Angels Church is located in the heart of Somerton, the ‘Ancient Royal Town of Wessex’. Parts of the church building date from the early 13th century, whilst other parts have been added as recently as 2004. The building underwent a major internal refurbishment in 2012 and 2013.

As well as housing regular worship for all ages and being a tranquil place for prayer, the church is also used for concerts and other community events especially during the annual Somerton Arts Festival and the Music @ St Michaels series.

Services take place each Sunday and we also regularly have a “Benefice Together Holy Communion” around the churches in the Benefice and join with other churches for services organised by Churches Together in Somerton, see website or magazine for details.

Details of services and events can be found on the website and also on the Benefice Magazine “Contact” available in church or on the website.

We also provide services for Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms.

Our other regular church activities include  a number of house groups, Mothers Union meetings, regular bell ringing, and a singing/music group for festivals.
We have strong links with King Ina Academy who hold regular services in church and their own services in the school.

The church is located in the Market Square, Somerton
