The church's organ has been dismantled and removed ready for refurbishment which is expected to last from September 2017 until Easter 2018. With the room where it was located now clear, an old fireplace, which would have been used to provide heat before the days of central heating, has been revealed. The inset image shows the organ before it was taken away. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron 9th September 2017.

This image comes from a scan of a calendar page contributed by visitors to Landkey (on 10th August 2017) who had recently purchased a house in South Devon. On exploring their loft, they came across a calendar for 1964 and discovered this scene of St Paul's Church and Landkey Town bridge for July-August of that year. The house below the church, which is visible in the picture, was occupied by Mr and Mrs Mills with their daughters. Mr Mills was the Church Warden for many years and they left Landkey to live in Plymouth. Their house was demolished in 1964. We are grateful to the visitors for letting us have this picture and for Betty Parker for submitting it to be included on the village and church websites.

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.

Site update. Regular visitors to this site may notice that its appearance has changed. This is due to design alterations which have been made to allow the site to adapt to wide range of screen sizes, ranging from mobile phones up to large computer monitors. 3rd August 2017

Disappearing organ!

The organ in St Paul's for which a campaign to raise funds for its restoration has been running for over a year, has now been dismantled and taken to Budleigh Salterton where it will be worked on for the next 6 months or so.

This will be the first time since it was installed in 1877 by Peter Conacher & Co. of Huddersfield that the church will have been without the organ. Its removal has left a large empty space next to the Choir area of the church and this has revealed an ancient fireplace which would, no doubt, have been lit to provide warmth during services in the days before central heating!

Harvest

With summer holiday-time now at an end, autumn suddenly seems to be upon us with the trees already turning colour. Farmers have been busy harvesting their grain, often in difficult conditions as the intermittently wet weather during August prevented crops from being gathered at the  peak of their condition.

It is at this time of year that we give thanks for the food that is produced for us and we will be holding our Harvest Service on Sunday 24th September at 10:30 am. All are welcome to join us.

On the day before, Saturday 23rd September, the church will be open for our Gift Day. Anyone who would like to make a donation to St Paul's will be welcome to do so. The upkeep of our parish church requires a significant financial commitment are we are grateful to all who are able to assist in whatever way they can.

Following the service we will have a Bring and Share Harvest Lunch. Visitors are welcome to the service, to share our lunch and to view the Church decorated with flowers and vegetables for harvest.
