Church of England Diocese of Bath & Wells Chilcompton with Downside

About Us

St. John's Church Chilcompton forms a benefice with St. Vigor's in nearby Stratton-on-the-Fosse. We are "one church with two buildings" and together we enjoy a range of Sunday and mid-week services for all ages from the Book of Common Worship, Book of Common Prayer and a Celtic Service once a month at St. John's. There are also two clubs - Jigsaw for 3-11 year olds and BUZZ for 11-18 year olds - who meet on Sundays, 10:30am at St. John's during term time except the second Sunday when St. John's has an All Age service in church. We also have Messy Church once a month on the fourth Sunday and Powerhouse,  for 11-18 year olds, is held in St. John's Church Hall on Sundays at 6:00pm.

The villages and the surrounding area are served by the Church of England VA Primary School of St. Vigor and St. John. The learning community is made up of seven classes, one class for each year group, and The Mill Nursery that is based on the school site. The staff and Governors strive to provide the children with a warm, secure and stimulating environment that promotes Christian values.

We run a number of homegroups, mission, pastoral and social activities and amongst others, support four main charities - CMS, Christian Aid, The Leprosy Mission and Tearfund. St. John's has a superb church hall that is used by church, community and business alike and is available for hire. You would be most welcome to join us at any of our services or events.
