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 Annual PCC Report and Financial reports were approved.
  • Eileen MacCaig was elected to the PCC (Parochial Church Council) and Charles Waldron was re-elected following the expiry of his previous 3-year term.

Lent Lunch - an enjoyable occasion

Worshippers from St Paul's were joined by other local residents in Landkey village hall for our Lent Lunch on 10th April 2019.

Diners were offered a choice of five soups, including corn and bacon chowder and pea and ham to accompany the plentiful supply of bread rolls. Tea, coffee and chocolate mints rounded off the meal which was consumed in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Thanks are extended to the many people who helped with the lunch, and especially to Josie and Mike Foster and Angela Bellamy who were kept very busy serving soups and drinks and with washing up.

Mothering Sunday service

Our Mothering Sunday service on 31st March was well attended and was enjoyed by all who came along.

The service included a well-prepared talk by Josie Foster, and she involved the children and young people present in the readings. They did an excellent job and later helped distribute daffodils to all the ladies present.


Eileen MacCaig and Angela Bellamy made cakes (Eileen’s was a Simnel cake) especially for the occasion and these were enthusiastically consumed after the service!
