The first church in the village was built in the 12th century. The Anglican Church of St James was rebuilt in 1790, using stone from Bruton Abbey and a Victorian restoration took place in the 1860s. The three stage tower is supported by diagonal buttresses and contains five bells, the oldest of which was cast in Bristol around 1380.

 We are part of the Alham Vale Benefice, under the Diocese of Bath & Wells and hold two services a month.

At 11am on the second Sunday there is Worship for Everyone and at 11am on the fourth Sunday Holy Communion Order 2. We would love to welcome you to our beautiful church, whether you live locally or are visiting, to share some time together, enjoy spiritual refreshment and have a chance to chat after the services.
