A church has stood at Chapel Allerton at least since 1176 and would have been smaller than the present building with a simple nave with narrow windows and no aisle or chancel. A major restoration took place in 1638 and a virtual rebuild in 1859.
Today the church is little changed from the rebuild 160 years ago, though a kitchen and toilet were added as a millennium project.
The church is situated at one end of Front Street in Chapel Allerton, BS26 2PH and the Parish encompasses Stone Allerton too. Allerton is in a joint benefice with the parish of Wedmore.
The church is at the centre of village life and has a service every Sunday at 9.00 a.m.
We have a children’s church, a choir, flower arrangers, cleaners, a churchyard mowing rota and much more.
Opening Times: The church is open daily from c.8.30 a.m to dusk.
Sunday Services are usually at 9.00 a.m. but details are always on the Allerton web site (see below)

Holy Trinity Church in Blackford was built in 1823 and its unusual design (octagonal) means it has fantastic acoustics and is a lovely space to meet and worship.
The building has recently been refurbished both outside and inside and is used by Blackford Community Choir for rehearsals as well as Sunday worship.
Sunday services are at 9 am or 6 pm and once a month Holy Trinity meets in Blackford Village Hall for the popular Sunday Breakfast. All are welcome at 9 am for bacon rolls, coffee, juice and cereal with a short act of worship at 9.30 am.
Daily during daylight hours
