A vigil in memory of soldiers who died during World War 1 was held after our service on 7th August 2016. It was held in the garden below the church beside a flowerbed of poppies which had been grown from seed planted first in 2014 to mark the centenary of the outbreak of war in 1914.

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.

Looking Ahead

It may seem premature to be discussing arrangements for Christmas but, now that we are into autumn and the evenings are pulling in, the realisation that the festive season is now not so far ahead begins to grow!

We have just posted onto this website our Christmas services and these will include, as in previous years, our popular Carols by Candlelight as well as Christingle and Midnight Mass.

We also hope to hold a Christmas Fayre in early December and also a Christmas Tree Festival. Fuller details on these two events will be posted soon.

All are welcome to join us at these services and events.
