St Michael's, Somerton
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 October and May
