                                 Mudford’s Bells

   On Tuesday 20 February, 4 of the church bells were removed from the tower and taken for tuning and renovation, a project long in the planning.  We hope they will be returned sometime in May.  See the page for photographs………

Every Thursday - Village Cafe

The Village Cafe is open every Thursday morning from 10am until noon in the Village Hall (please see below for details of Mudford Village Hall).  

You can enjoy a great cup of coffee or tea and, perhaps, treat yourself to a toasted teacake or slice of delicious apple cake, and meet your friends.

                                       Benefice Choir               

  The Benefice Choir goes from strength to strength under the Musical Directorship of   Ken Sherring, and their voices have been much appreciated at various Benefice   Services.

  Meetings are generally on the first Saturday of each month from 10:00am, and weekly   on Saturdays leading up to a service or concert at which the choir is due to sing.    

  No auditions are held, although it is helpful if members can read music, and

  Ken can often supply MIDI files for those who find them helpful.

                            Yeovil Street Pastors

Street Pastors are now out on the streets of Yeovil every Friday and Saturday night from 10pm until about 3.30am to give help and support to any young person who needs it.

Yeovil currently has 50 Street Pastors.  Each team consists of at least 4 members, each of whom will work a minimum of one night a month.

Here is what one of the team says “A shared emotion I have experienced with other Street Pastors is the buzz you get from being out in the night-time economy.  Spiced with the interaction and rapport with both the public and other professionals out at that time of night, by and large I have felt most welcomed.  The positive encouragement and admiration expressed by many underline the need for our presence in Yeovil.  Another dynamic that has astounded me is the synchronisation of our involvement on the streets with the directions brought about by our Prayer Team’s intercessions - this combination awakes the sense that we are a real and active channel for God to make changes in our town.”
