Yatton Moor Team Ministry

Welcome ...

... to the Yatton Moor Team Ministry. We are a friendly, lively team, each of our five village churches different in character, but all offering a warm welcome, whether you are new to the area or are already part of the community. We are situated in North Somerset, 12 miles South West of Bristol, England.

Announcement of Retirement
The Revd Canon David Harrex, Team Vicar of Yatton Moor with responsibility for Cleeve with Claverham and Bath Archdeaconry Warden of Readers, has given notice to retire on 30 April 2017.
After 28 years of full time ministry, David together with his wife Liza, recognise that the time is now appropriate to move on from their full time ministry and careers. They will be leaving the parish and diocese to discern together the next chapter in their lives.
David's final services within the Team will take place on Sunday 16th April. Details and the date of a Team farewell to David and Liza will be announced in due course.

Email: office@yattonchurches.org
The information will be passed to one of the clergy who will then make contact.


As well as our regular services and special events, there is a lot going on in our churches, from music to bellringing, from youth groups to craft groups, and regular involvement in the wider village communities.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved, but if you would rather just come and worship or join in any of our events, you are equally most welcome.
