St Michael's, Somerton
Church of England Parish serving the Community of Somerton in Somerset
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 between Sep-Jun.
Services take place each Sunday at 8am, 11am, and on the first sunday of the month we have an event "Connect@StMichael's at 7.30pm a very open and free evening in cafe style with discussion on various topical and challenging topics. On the fourth sunday we have a healing service at 6.30pm.
We hold a 10am Communion Service each Wednesday. We have Mattins on the 3rd Friday of the month at 10am.
We also provide monthly services at Wessex House, a local nursing home, and at two Warden controlled units Parsonage Close and Laburnum Drive.
There are of course additional services in the churches of the Benefice on Sundays.
We also provide services for Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms.
Our other regular church activities include The Rock Activity Church (for children and their parents), a number of house groups, Mothers Union meetings, regular bell ringing, and a singing/music group.
We have strong links with the local school King Ina Academy who hold regular services in church and their own services in the school.
St Michael's is part of the United Benefice of Somerton with The Charltons and Kingsdon, three parishes who seek to work together to promote the Kingdom of God in this area.
The church is located in the Market Square, Somerton.
