The Anglican Church of the Holy Trinity at Sutton Montis in the parish of South Cadbury, Somerset, England has Saxon origins but most of the surviving building is from the 12th century and subsequent periods. It has been designated as a Grade I listed building.[1][2]

The first building on the site was Saxon, however most of the current Doulting stone building is from the 12th century and has been revised in the centuries since, with major Victorian restoration in 1862.[2] The Norman building seats approximately 80 people within the three-bay nave and chancel. The west tower has three bells, dating from 1420, 1636 and 1764.[3][2]

The octagonal font is from the 15th century, and the wooden pulpit from the 17th.[2]

To enable the use of multimedia within services a sound system and projection screen were installed in the church.[4] Ramped access for disabled church goers has also been installed.[5]

The parish is within the Cam Vale benefice within the Diocese of Bath and Wells.[6][7]
