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 suspended - for just a little longer

The "route map" out of lockdown produced by the government on 22nd February 2021 indicates that this will be a slow process. Services at St Paul's remain suspended as we continue to feel that that it is sensible to avoid bringing people together until the pandemic is more under control. However, we do hope to resume services at Easter, as long as the good progress in reducing infections and administering vaccinations is maintained.

Services continue to be held by Zoom (details below) and the church is open for private prayer by arrangement. If you would like to arrange an opening, please phone either Hazel Price on 01271 831259 or Margaret Perryman on 01271 831534.

We will be holding our service on Sunday 7th March by Zoom and the link is now available below. This link is now used for recurring services and will, therefore be the same one which we used on 28th February. The service will start at 10:30am and the Zoom session will be open from 10:15am.

We have also included the link to the liturgy for Lent in pdf format which participants might like to use to follow the service. It can be accessed below.

During Lent, our Reader, Josie Foster will be hosting a Lent course each Thursday afternoon at 1pm, via Zoom. A document giving information on this course is available below and, if you would like to join in, please send us a message via the "Contact Us" page and Josie will send you the link.

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.

Online services becoming more like the real thing!

Nothing will replace the experience of actually being in church and sharing the service with other congregation members. However, we have become more practised at holding online services via Zoom since they began on 10th January 2021, with the result that the feeling of taking part in real communal worship has grown.

Our service on 7th February 2021 was led by Revd David Chance, with Revd Shaun managing the technical aspects of the live stream to the participants joining in by Zoom. From within the church, Josie Foster assisted with some elements of the liturgy, while Mike Foster and Hazel Price gave two of the readings. Hymns were played using Shaun's music player, while those of us who were "Zooming" were able to follow the liturgy from a file which had been sent out with the meeting link.

All in all, it felt almost like a real service. Soon, perhaps it will be!
