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 2000, 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.

Coronavirus and beyond

Services in church resume

After many weeks during which communal worship in our parish church has been "on hold" due to the presence of Covid-19, services in church resumed with our Easter Sunday service on 4th April. An account of this joyful occasion is given below.

Services continue to be held in church as well as on Zoom, the link for which is available below.

Services are also accessible on Revd Shaun's Mission Prayer Programme Facebook page. The link to this is available in the St Paul's Coronavirus Procedures document below.

Back in church!

Our Easter Sunday service on 4th April was held in the church, the first to take place this way since early January.

Significant planning had been carried out in advance to ensure that it would be a Covid-safe occasion. These measures included the use of a booking system to facilitate social distancing as well as making attendees aware of the need for the wearing of face masks and that singing inside the church was not permitted.

It was, though, a joyful service, with a full Easter Holy Communion liturgy being presided over by Revd Shaun. Shaun offered Communion "as one kind" (i.e. as bread only) which was allowed within the rules, an offer which most congregation members took advantage of.

The final hymn was "Thine be the Glory" and Hazel invited anyone who so wished to go outside into the glorious sunshine where singing was permitted and sing along as Bob Loveridge played on the organ.
