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.

Harvest Service

Our Harvest Service was held on Sunday 23rd September and was led by the Archdeacon of Barnstaple, The Ven. Dr Mark Butchers.

The church had been decorated as part of a harvest-themed Flower Festival which also included a display of church vestments. It was, therefore, a very attractive scene which greeted worshippers for this service and helped to make this a very enjoyable occasion.

Dr Mark engaged the children in a thoughtful talk about how everything that we need in our daily lives, from food to fuel, from metal to plastic, comes from our planet which was created by God in a "Big Bang", millions of years ago. The children ably held up images to illustrate the talk and there was even a blow-up model of the earth!

A Harvest Lunch was served afterwards and was enjoyed by many of the congregation who were able to stay for the occasion.

Organ Recital

All will be welcome to join us at this recital which will be played on the recently-refurbished organ. Our church organist, Robert Loveridge, will lead the recital, but will be accompanied by his family members, Mark, on percussion and Anya-Jade on guitar.

They will play classic organ pieces as well as popular transcriptions at what promises to be an enjoyable evening of musical entertainment. 

Built in 1877, the organ had fallen into a state of disrepair and a campaign was launched in 2016 to raise the £28000 required to entirely dismantle and refurbish it. By the end of 2017, this target had been reached and the restoration work began and was completed by February of this year. The organ has been played since April 2018 at Sunday services but this recital will be the first time that its impressive sound will be able to be heard at a public event.

Join us on Saturday 3rd November at 7:30pm in the church for what we hope will be a memorable evening!

Funds raised will go to church funds.
