​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.



Here he is in close-up,

participating  in Harvest

Thanksgiving celebrations.




 

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.
