St Mary’s Yarlington is part of the Camelot Group of Parishes which consist of nine Church of England parishes (and ten churches) either side of the A303 between the market towns of Wincanton and Castle Cary in a beautiful part of South Somerset.

From time to time and particularly around Christmas, Harvest and Easter this schedule of services varies.

Christmas is celebrated with a Carol Service in the church shortly before Christmas and a morning service on Christmas Day itself. There is an evening service on Easter Day. Harvest is celebrated with an evening service towards the end of September. There is also a service on Remembrance Sunday.
