The attraction,"Soak the Vicar" amused many people at the Garden Party on 30th June 2018. Here, Revd Shaun is assailed by a sponge-wielding participant but, with the temperatures approaching 30C, Shaun felt that it was no hardship being doused with water!

Welcome to the website for St Paul's Church, the Church of England church for the parish of Landkey.

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 25 worshippers. All are welcome to attend our services.

Congratulations, Josie!

The sermon at our service on Sunday 12th August was given by Josie Foster who will soon begin training to become a church Reader, or lay preacher.

She informed us that her application to become a Reader had been accepted by the Church of England and her training will start in September. Congregation members were pleased to hear this news and gave Josie a round of applause.

Josie's sermon was thoughtful and well put together and was drawn from the Gospel of John. Drawing on the parable of the feeding of the five thousand, she explained that God, expressed through Jesus, was the Bread of Life and that anyone who fed on this would never go hungry.

Forthcoming Events

This is usually a quiet time of year for the church, with many people taking advantage of the school holiday to take a break.

However, we do have several events planned to take place during September at which all are welcome to join us:

  • Saturday 8th September: St Paul's will be open for Historic Churches Day from 10am - 4pm with guided tours of the church being offered from 11am-3pm. Donations are invited for the upkeep of a church of the donor's choice and for Devon churches in general.
  • We will be holding a Flower Festival in the church daily from 21st-23rd September. Donations at this event will go to the upkeep of St Paul's Church.
  • On 23rd September, we will be holding our Harvest Festival service in the church at 10:30am.
