Church of England Diocese of Bath & Wells Blackford

About Us

St Michael’s, a member of the Camelot group of churches, has been serving the village of Blackford since the twelfth century. The building, of Norman origins, is a simple two-cell structure of chancel and nave with porch added later. It has some interesting features, including a beautiful east window, 'The Good Shepherd' by John Hayward.

Our Rector is the Reverend Tristram Rae Smith and services are held here on the second and fourth Sundays of every month, with Morning Prayer at 9.30am on the second Sunday and Holy Communion at 8.00am on the fourth. There are also celebrations at Christmas, Easter and Harvest.  We would be very pleased for you to join us here in worship.

In the church you will find further information, including copies of 'Excalibur' the parish magazine and the booklet 'A Guide to the Churches of Camelot' with historical notes on all ten churches of the group.  The porch noticeboard carries details of clergy, lay personnel and contact details.

If you are in the vicinity having recently moved here, or just simply passing through – call in and enjoy the calm!
