A message from Revd Annie

We are delighted to announce that Rev. Nick Clarke has been appointed as the new Rector for the Ham Hill Villages benefice. We will be organizing a welcome service for him in November and he will be based in Stoke sub Hamdon, at the vicarage.

My thanks to everyone who has been involved, not only in the appointment process but also supporting the life of the church throughout the communities in this very long vacancy.

Online services continue to be offered every Sunday by this link:…….

Our church buildings are now opening for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals and private prayer once or twice a week (please see the relevant church pages) and Sunday worship has recommenced inside some churches.    During September there will be Harvest Thanksgiving services outside every village church [Middle Chinnock 4th October] to which everyone is welcome.

A new contemplative prayer group will be starting on September 10th, 4:30pm at All Saints Hall, Stoke sub Hamdon, and an online Alpha course will also be starting shortly.

The parish office is reopening on 1 September.

Every Blessing


Eternal God
Whose love is unceasing and whose kingdom un-ending
Grant to your people at this time of change and uncertainty in our Benefice
Such a sense of your presence that we may rest secure in the knowledge of your unchanging love and look to the future with confidence and untroubled minds.
We ask this in the name of Christ Jesus    Amen

This benefice is a group of seven parishes, located around the famous Ham Hill, just south-west of Yeovil in South Somerset.

The  churches include some 160 regular worshippers who are committed to serve God and their communities.


We are part of The Church of England
within the Diocese of Bath and Wells

‘I have come that they may have life in all its fullness’  (John 10 )
