Church of England Diocese of Bath & Wells Preston Plucknett

About Us

St. Peter's with its sister church St. James' are in the Parish of Preston Plucknett, Yeovil.

St. Peter’s is the Church of England parish church for Westfield, providing for the spiritual needs of the area together with our sister church of St. James’, Preston Plucknett. We are a community of people trying to worship and follow Jesus, and to work out what that means in the 21st century in our local community. St. Peter’s people meet in our Church in Coronation Avenue (opposite the chip shop).

St. Peter’s is strongly involved in the local community, and has Sunday Club for children, as well as running a midweek group for youth, and social groups for adults. Our church hall was the centre for dozens of community groups and private celebrations. It is currently closed awaiting demolition. We have exciting plans to redevelop it into a modern and vibrant hub for the local community to come together. Our project is to demolish the old hall and replace it with a new purpose-built Community Centre. In place of the single space of the hall it will have 3 usable spaces (large hall, meeting/training room and 1-2-1 room) plus a communal area for a volunteer run community café.
