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.
Thought for the Week
As members of the Church we have the duty to speak out against injustice and harmful practices wherever we come up against them.
The thoughtless use of plastic is one example. I believe all of us need to be far more conscious of the amount of plastic we use. It is very hard to avoid. But we need to strive for a solution to this problem, because we are in danger of destroying the beautiful planet God has given us as our home.
Campaign for less packaging. Press for more recycling. Don’t use that take-away plastic cup in Waitrose or Costa. Do not buy bottled water. Risk that hostile stare!

Prayer for the Sunday
Holy and blessed God, you have fed us with the body and blood of your Son and filled us with your Holy Spirit: may we honour you, not only with our lips, but in lives dedicated to the service of Jesus Christ our Lord.
