Welcome to St Michael and All Angels, the Parish Church of Haselbury Plucknett in South Somerset

The building you see now is largely Victorian, but we know that a church has stood on this spot for about a thousand years. And although we have no historical records, Christian worship here might well go back even further.

 

Our parish is part of the Wulfric Benefice, which takes its name from a holy man who lived by our church in the 12th century. For an astonishing 29 years, Wulfric stayed enclosed in his cell, which was located where the vestry is now. His reputation as a healer and counselor spread far and wide and he attracted visitors from all over Britain.

Whether you visit our church during the week or join us for Sunday worship, we hope that you will find here something of God’s peace and the warmth of Christian fellowship.

We welcome you on behalf of our Vicar, the Revd. Jonathan Morris. Enjoy exploring our website to find all the information you might need.

Next Service

Sunday 15 March
Mothering Sunday

No public worship.

As you will probably know, our Archbishops have asked all Anglican churches to suspend all public worship for the time being.

The Bishops of Bath & Wells have suggested that we observe Mothering Sunday this year as a Sunday of Action and Prayer.  We are asked to place a lighted candle in our windows at 7 pm and spend time in  prayer.  At this difficult time, let us consider prayerfully what each one of us can do to support those who need help in our local communities.

Readings

Exodus 17.1-7, Psalm 95, Romans 5.1-11, John 4.5-42

Prayer for the Sunday

Merciful Lord, grant your people grace to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh and the devil, and with pure hearts and minds to follow you, the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
