On Sunday 18th December 2016, the service at St Paul's was Nativity-themed. The service was led by Angela Bellamy and, despite there not having been a rehearsal, she managed to expertly "choreograph" the story and involve many members of the congregation. These included Joseph Ley (as Joseph!) and his sister Isabelle as Mary who were attended enthusiastically by others at this crib scene! Image courtesy of Angela Bellamy 19th December 2016.

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 30 worshippers. All are welcome to attend our services.

Happy New Year!

We wish all who visit this website a happy New Year, 2017!

We are grateful to all who participated in whatever way in our Christmas events and services which started with our Fayre on 3rd December and culminated in our Midnight Mass on 24th December. It was pleasing to welcome so many to these occasions.

After the colourful and busy festive period, January can seem rather grey and devoid of interest by comparison. However, we will continue to hold services as usual each Sunday and these vary in nature from our Family services to services of Holy Communion and Morning Prayer. All are welcome to join us to hear the same Word of God which was heard during Advent and Christmas, albeit in a less festive style!

For some people the new year will be one in which they try to resolve to problems for which solutions seem difficult to find. Others may well be anxious about matters outside their control, such as the consequences of the political upheavals of 2016. In such circumstances these words from Philippians (ch 4) might offer some comfort:

"The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
