Welcome to St. Peter & Paul Church, Lufton, near Yeovil. BA22 8SU.
We are a tiny village, to the west of Yeovil, just off the Montacute Road. To contact us, see the details at the bottom of this page.
We seek to worship and praise God faithfully week by week in the corner of His Creation that He has lent us. We are a very traditionalist congregation, and although we are small in number, we try to experience the love of God in our worship, and to show it in our lives. We are delighted when anyone joins us for worship, and if we meet them as strangers, we pray that we part as friends in the name of the Lord Jesus
Our little church dates from Norman times, but was comprehensively rebuilt in 1865 by Benjamin Ferrey.
We hold services every Sunday at 6.00.p.m. and we always welcome visitors warmly to join with us in worship.
First Sunday of the Month: Evensong.(1662)
Second Sunday: Evensong. (1662)
Third Sunday: Evensong. (1662)
Fourth Sunday: Holy Communion. (1662)
Services are held at 6.00.p.m. throughout the year.
Here are some pictures of our church for you to enjoy:
The Altar and East Window, with glass by Kemp, and wood-work
by Raymond Brothers of Yeovil.
The glass depicts the story of the
visit of our Lord to Martha and Mary,
as told in the Gospel of St. Luke, and
also has the text from Palm 16:
"In Thy Presence is the Fullness of Joy"
A view of the Nave, showing the
Soldier's Cross brought back
after the First World War,
and the organ given in memory
of the organist's parents, and all
past worshippers in this church.
The font is the Church's great treasure.
It is certainly Norman, and may be even
earlier. The carved rope moulding is still
as crisp as when it was carved about a
thousand years ago. It bears testimony
to the long history of worship on this site.
A view of the chancel, showing
some of the elegant brass-work
which adorns the church, and
just visible on the left, a splendid
carved wooden eagle lectern,
again the work of the Raymond
Brothers of Yeovil, who fitted all
the fine oak in the church.

participating in Harvest
This is the former church, from an engraving early in the nineteenth century. The text below the picture reads: "The church, which is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, is a small low edifice of one aisle with a turret containing two small bells." The population is recorded as 24, and up to the present time it was scarcely bigger, but now, in 2018, with the westward expansion of Yeovil, and new housing being built, the population is likely to be in the region of 1500.
