St Leonard’s Church
St Leonard’s Church is only just over 100 years old, the original Church having burnt down. The Church is part of the Wulfric Benefice which comprises of Crewkerne, Wayford, Clapton Churches, North Perrott and Haselbury Plucknett. We share a priest with North Perrott and Haselbury Plucknett. There is a service in the Church three Sundays in the month, but the first Sunday the services rotate around the other two Churches. The Church is open during the day from Easter to the end of September. During the winter months it is closed.
1st Sunday- 10am United Eucharist (this rotates with the other two parishes)
2nd Sunday – 11am – Holy Communion
3rd Sunday – 9.30am – Holy Communion
4th Sunday – 8am – Holy Communion
5th Sunday – 10am
(When there is a 5th Sunday this also rotates with the other two parishes)
The Church Electoral Roll stands at 46. The majority of these are regular members of the congregation. The Parish Share is raised by Sunday services and some of the proceeds from the Annual Village Fete.
The Church is well attended by villagers at special services such as Easter, Harvest, Christmas and the Village Carol Service. Baptisms and Weddings also take place during the year.
The grounds and the Church are maintained by either members of the congregation or by local craftsmen when needed.

Misterton Baptist Chapel
The Baptist Chapel at Misterton is one of the two buildings used by Crewkerne and Misterton Baptist Church, the other being at North Street, Crewkerne. The Chapel has been a focal point in village life for over a century, having being opened in 1876.
Today Sunday services are held here every week and a number of local people see the Chapel as their spiritual home. In 2010, the average Sunday congregation is 15 people, with larger numbers at Family Services which are held throughout the year. The Chapel continues to be a focus for activities among children and younger people, through Kingfisher Club and Club Rock. There is also a thriving fortnightly meeting for ladies at the Chapel.
The Baptist Chapel is also available and used for important milestones in the lives of local people, for example marriages and funerals.
Sadly the Baptist Chapel closed in Misterton in December 2016.
