West Camel Methodist Church is situated on the A303 road between Sparkford and Ilchester.  Although Methodism in West Camel goes back to the 18th century, the present church was built in 1908 beside what was then a narrow country lane (see picture below).  This has now become the busy A303 London to Exeter trunk road.  In 1998, to coincide with the 90th anniversary celebrations, extensive alterations were undertaken.  This involved reversing the interior layout of the chapel, constructing a new entrance, and renovating the church hall, and now chairs replace the pews.
The membership of the church is quite small, but it is a lively and friendly church. 

Our Minister is the Rev. Ken Chalmers of Castle Cary (Tel. 01963 351598),
and our Church Steward is Liz Chapman 01935 850838
We invite you to come and meet us - you are assured of a warm and friendly welcome!
"Our Church Council would like to make our premises available for Christian events, e.g. Church study days, Alpha 'away-days', etc.. We have good facilities, and our kitchen and toilets have recently been re-decorated, with new double-glazed windows fitted. The chapel is adaptable, with comfortable chairs, and there is a pool table and table tennis table in the hall. There is also level access, and car parking space. If you are interested, please enquire."
100 years Celebration - Rev. Arnold Page (a past Minister of West Camel) cuts the cake.
