St. John's Church Chilcompton forms a joint benefice with St. Vigor's in nearby Stratton-on-the-Fosse. We are "one church with two buildings" and together we enjoy a range of Sunday and mid-week services for all ages from the Book of Common Worship, Book of Common Prayer and a Celtic Service once a month at St. John's. There are also two clubs - Jigsaw for 3-11 year olds and BUZZ for 11-18 year olds - during the 10:30am Sunday Services at St. John's and we have Messy Church once a month on the fourth Sunday. Powerhouse,  for 11-18 year olds, is held in St. John's Church Hall every Sunday at 6:00pm.

We run a number of homegroups, mission, pastoral and social activities and amongst others, support four main charities - CMS, Christian Aid, The Leprosy Mission and Tearfund. St. John's has a superb church hall that is used by church, community and business alike and is available for hire. You would be most welcome to join us at any of our services or events.
