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.

Although COVID restrictions have been largely removed, we still observe social distancing and mask wearing as well as an adapted form of Holy Communion. From Sunday 29 August onwards, we are pleased to say that we will sing hymns again .
We are also happy to announce that the Revd. Christopher Davis has been appointed Rector of the Wulfric Benefice. He will be coming to us from St Nicholas Church, Tooting Graveney, in the Diocese of Southwark and will probably be able to take up his new post here in Advent. We extend a warm welcome to Christopher and his wife Mary.
In the meantime, a smaller number of clergy have to look after all the parishes in the Wuilfric Benefice, and there cannot be a service in Haselbury every Sunday morning. For the time being, the worship pattern will be as shown below.
