Benefice of Somerton

Long Sutton

Long Sutton ChurchThe Parish is made up of the villages of Long Sutton, Long Load and the hamlets of Knole and Upton.

The church is normally open during daylight hours. The present building dates from 1493. An earlier church would have stood on this site from the 9th century or earlier. The tower exhibits the tracery typical of Somerset churches. The beautifully carved wooden pulpit dating from the mid 15th century is older than the church, and its chief treasure. The wood screen is also ornately carved and dates from the late 15th century.

Details of Services can be found on Services page of this website.

Following the recent interviews and the recommendation of the Parish representatives, we are pleased to announce that the Bishop has appointed the Reverend Judith Swan to the post of Priest in Charge of the Parishes of Somerton, The Charltons, Kingsdon, Long Sutton and Long Load and Pitney. This appointment is subject to a satisfactory completion of the usual statutory checks made on all clergy taking up a new post.

A Service of Welcome will be on Thursday 25th July at 7pm in St Michael's, Somerton.
