St Vigor's & St John's


Welcome to the Midsomer Norton Deanery newsletter. This newsletter is distributed throughout the Deanery, and is a great  place to let others know about your upcoming event and share photos of those things happening in your church.

If there’s a group running in your benefice that’s having a positive impact, perhaps you’d like to send in an article or photo with a few lines to inspire others.

Synod reps please send contribution for the newsletter to

Upcoming dates for your diary

The church in Peasedown St John is part of an exciting new pilot supported by the Church of England. Bubble Church is a Sunday church service especially for babies, toddlers, and young families. It’s a puppet-packed, Jesus-centered, coffee-and-croissant-fueled, 30 minute kids and families adventure.

Bubble Church will be on the first Sunday of every month launching on Sunday 3rd December; starting at 9am with coffee and croissants at St Johns Church Peasedown.

As Christmas approaches there are lots of events and
services happening throughout the Deanery

Wait a minute… Did I miss the November Newsletter?

As our publish date is towards the end of the month and the newsletter is then
distributed throughout the deanery, we’ve decided to change the monthly title, so the
December titled newsletter (rather than the November newsletter) is distributed
throughout December, and so forth going forward.

Do you have something
to share in the next
MSN Deanery Newsletter?

Please email Katie Chapman at with your
news and photographs to be included
