St Leonard's Church, Rodney Stoke

Welcome to our page!  We hope you can find all you need, but if there is anything else please get in touch.

St Leonard's is a Grade One, small, medieval church situated at the western end of the village. The church was first built in the 12th century and has been added to over the centuries.

It has many visitors throughout the year, some of whom come from overseas. The church has some remarkable features inside. Most notably are the four monuments to the Rodney family in the chapel built in the 15th century. The pews in the nave, which seat about 80 people, have beautiful bench ends originally carved by the villagers. One of the stained glass windows, which has been recently restored, commemorates the safe return of the men and women who took part in the First World War and is known as the Thanksgiving Window.

The parish of Rodney Stoke is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Bath & Wells’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
