St Mary’s is a welcoming community! We gather together to celebrate and worship on a regular basis with BCP Holy Communion and Evening Prayer.

We are a part of, and value greatly our fellowship with all the churches of The Ilchester Benefice (Ilchester with Northover, Limington and Yeovilton with Podimore). We also have a strong relationship with the Fleet Air Arm Memorial church of St Bartholomew in Yeovilton village.

The Church dates from the late 14th century and includes fragments of an earlier building. It has been designated as a Grade I listed building.

Fragments of the north door and tower date from the Norman period, but most of the building are from the 14th century with the chantry chapel being dated to 1328. It is built of local stone with Hamstone dressings. The tower has six bells, the oldest of which is from the 15th century. The interior includes a pulpit and alter table from the 17th century and an octagonal font from the 16th. There are several effigies including one of Sir Richard Gyvernay who built the chantry chapel and died in 1329. Below this is a smaller female figure and there is also a double monument of a male and female figure, which are believed to be Henry and Matilda Power and date from the 1340s.

Significantly Limington was the only ‘living’ held by Thomas Wolsey. He is believed to have lived in the village and operated as the parish priest in situ for 3 of the 5 years he held the living. The last 2 years saw him begin his work at the court of Henry VIII.

If you enjoy worshipping God in Christ Jesus you might like to join us on a Sunday; we would love to meet you and get to know you, and hopefully the feeling will be mutual.
