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.

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

St Paul's Church will be helping to mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne during the long weekend of 2nd-5th June 2022.

A full peal of the church bells will be rung on Thursday 2nd June between 10am and 1pm. A full peal lasts three hours and this will be significant for St Paul's as there is no record of a full peal ever having been rung in our parish church before.

We will also be planting a tree as part of the Queen's Green Canopy, with a date for this to be decided soon.

Further details of our involvement in this historic occasion in our nation's history will be posted here as soon as they become available.

Coronavirus guidelines from 3rd May 2022

The Church of England has updated its guidelines for churches in respect of Covid-19 and these are avilable in the document on the link below.

The main change is that the assumption is now that churches will offer Holy Communion as both bread and wine unless there is a compelling reason not to do so. The use of face coverings is recommended in enclosed or crowded spaces.

At St Paul's, we have recently reintroduced the chalice and, while we invite congregation members to receive Communion, we do not place any obligation on anyone to do so. We also continue to support the wearing of face masks, although this is not an expectation.

Most importantly, all are welcome at St Paul's!
