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.

Prayer for the Sunday

O God, whose beauty is beyond our imagining and whose power we cannot comprehend: show us your glory as far as we can grasp it, and shield us from knowing more than we can bear until we may look upon you without fear; through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
