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.

What is heaven like?

Our Family Service on 2nd June was well attended with several children joining Angela Bellamy for her Bible-themed talk. With Ascension Day having fallen on the previous Thursday, Angela chose heaven as the subject of her talk. She explained to the children that, although we know that heaven is a nice place, we cannot know what it is actually like. She used the analogy of dragonfly larvae emerging from their pond by climbing up a reed stem and turning into the beautiful adult insects that we see fluttering over water at this time of year. The adults wouldn’t have been able to tell the larvae what it was like to be in their new form as they had no means of returning to their previous one. So, like the dragonflies, those people who have passed on to another life have no way of telling us what heaven is like!
