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

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

The Reverse Advent Calender  - have you got yours?



Advent Calendars are always fun, be they chocolate or filled with novelty presents. The Reverse Advent Calendar is all about filling the days with goods for our local food bank in Yeovil. Over the Christmas period the food bank find their stocks depleted just at the point when many people find the middle of winter bites hardest on their budgets. This Advent why not join us and add an item each day to a box and bring them to Ilchester Church on Saturday 30th December. We will do the rest in getting your gifts to the food bank in time for the January rush.
