Update on Tuesday 5th September

Planning to visit St. John’s Church, Chilcompton? Please note that our planned works require another few days to complete. Therefore, the building will now be closed to visitors from Wednesday 6th September until Friday 8th September inclusive to enable further work to the refurbishment of the chancel floor to be carried out safely. The church will be open again to visitors from Saturday 9th September.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
