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

The church has been observing the month of September as Creationtide – and as autumn draws on, we move into the closely related theme of Harvest – a time when we offer thanks to our Creator God for the fruits of the earth. Harvest perhaps has added relevance with the growing concern, both for the way we care for the environment, and for a fairer sharing of the earth’s produce.

Harvest also has a message about how God will one day come to do a reckoning with his creation when we shall be called upon to give some account of the way we have responded, or not, to his generosity. So may we live each day God gives us to glorify him, and to live on earth, as stated in the timeless words of the prophet Micah: ‘The Lord has told us what is good. What he requires of us is this: to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with our God.’

please use the
button marked CONTACT US at the top of this page, and your message will be conveyed to the most appropriate person as soon as it is picked up – certainly the same day.

If the matter is sufficiently urgent and you would rather telephone, then please ring Lionel Holmes on 01647 440113 or 07931 890255.
We can put you in touch with a member of the ministry team, should you wish to discuss church or personal matters – or just chat.

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, 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.
