The tranquil village of Landkey is situated just three miles from the busy market town of Barnstaple in North Devon. With a growing population in excess of 1800, a strong sense of community exists within the village and, of this, the church is an important part. As well as offering regular Christian worship, the church provides valuable links to other areas of the community such as the local Primary School and the Mothers' Union.
St Paul's is a friendly church in which the Christian message is heard regularly by a congregation of around 30 worshippers. All are welcome to attend our services.
Our Easter Sunday service was a happy occasion with Revd Shaun reminding us in his sermon that we had reason to be joyful in the knowledge that Jesus Christ's resurrection showed that the sins of this world could not prevent life continuing after death.
He recalled how no-one, not even Jesus' disciples, believed that Jesus would rise from the dead, even though he had foretold this. Even Mary Magdalene, who came to the tomb, came to anoint Jesus' body (Mark ch 16) rather than with any expectation that he would have risen again.
It was some time afterwards that the real significance of Jesus' life, death and resurrection became apparent to his early followers and it is this period which leads to Pentecost that will now be the focus of attention in the Christian calendar.
After our service , members of the congregation enthusiastically sampled an Easter cake which Angela Bellamy had made!View older articles
