WELCOME to our group of four churches
on the eastern edge of Dartmoor.

TRINITY SUNDAY marked a watershed in the Church’s year. There follows a long period of what is referred to as ‘Ordinary Time’, taking us right up to Advent. The great events of Christ’s life have been celebrated and we now have a period of learning to understand how we are to live in the light of these events. We also continue to pray that God’s Holy Spirit, whose arrival we celebrated at Pentecost, may continue to direct both ourselves and our nation, along with the rest of the world so much of it needing rescue and renewal, and the removal of the presence and power of evil.

St Andrew’s Church held a prayer time for Ukraine when the aisle was lined with tea lights to show the power of light over the darkness prevailing over that nation and over so many other areas of the world.

Our grateful thanks to all those who contributed so magnificently to the collection of items for Ukraine during Lent.

Let our churches inspire you!

The four parish churches and one chapel that comprise this benefice are all cultural icons of the communities they serve and are of considerable heritage importance.

Much more than that, however, except during the present emergency, they are also living centres of Christian worship, offering peace and solace to all who enter them, and the Good News of Jesus Christ – as relevant as ever to the needs of a turbulent world.

So please come and explore our website and find out more.
