Ilchester district churches


Latest News

St Mary Major, Ilchester is the last of 7 churches which once graced the old Roman town of 'Lendinae'


St Peter's Podimore is a 'gem' of a village church. (picture shows the tower after recent restoration works)

St Mary Limington is full of history. It is believed to be Thomas Wolsey's first parish church

St Bartholomew  Yeovilton is no longer a parish church today instead it honours the men and women of the 'Fleet Air Arm'.

Always a warm welcome



Fantastic news, the Big Breakfast for Christian Aid raised over £450 - that is a lot of taost and bacon indeed!

Ilchester District Churches - St Mary Major, St Peter's and St Mary's - form the benefice of Ilchester with Northover, 

Limington and Yeovilton with Podimore in the Church of England Diocese of Bath and Wells.                                             Each church is distinct in its own right and very representative of its village community.

Why not drop in and join the worship at one of our services on a Sunday

Good news for St Peter's - Thanks to the generosity of the Heritage Lottery Fund we have been able to restore our 'hexagonal' shaped church tower. After much hard work the grant scheme finally came to a conclusion in May 2017 - Thank you HLF!
