With the drop in coronavirus infections and with the numbers who have been vaccinated we are re-opening Somerton Church for live worship.


Therefore we are now booking for:-

Ash Wednesday 17th February 10 am Communion


Sunday 21st February 11am Communion


Both of these services will also be broadcast on zoom.

To book please call 01458 272029 or email somerton.vicar@btinternet.com


The "Virtual Worship" and "music items are updated regularly.


It is now mandatory to wear face coverings when worshiping.


In response to reaching the terrible milestone of 100,000 deaths from COVID-19, the Archbishops invite all to call on God in Prayer. Starting on 1 February we invite you to set aside time every evening to pray, particularly at 6pm each day. More than ever, this is a time when we need to love each other. Prayer is an expression of love. Please see below a copy of the full letter.
