St Michael & All Angels

St Michael's is a beautiful parish church in the equally beautiful Somerset village of East Coker.  

Our mantra is faith, community, heritage.  We want to live, tell and share the story of Jesus; enrich the fantastic community that is our village; and honour and preserve the heritage entrusted to us.

Amongst other distinctions, St Michael's is the final resting place of the poet T S Eliot.

We are open all day, everyday.  Whether you visit to join a service of worship, to visit the resting place of T S Eliot, or for some moments of quiet reflection or private prayer, you are very welcome.
