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.

Happy birthday, Joan!

Joan Dearle celebrated her 90th birthday on 18th October 2018 and was joined by many friends and relations in Landkey village hall for a party. A good time was had by all!

Joan has worshipped at St Paul's for many years and her then forthcoming big day was mentioned at our Family Service on 7th October.

Organ Concert

All will be welcome to join us at this concert which will be played on the recently-refurbished organ. Our church organist, Robert Loveridge, will lead the concert, but will be accompanied by his family members, Mark, on percussion and Anya-Jade on guitar.

They will play classic organ pieces as well as popular transcriptions at what promises to be an enjoyable evening of musical entertainment. 

Built in 1877, the organ had fallen into a state of disrepair and a campaign was launched in 2016 to raise the £28000 required to entirely dismantle and refurbish it. By the end of 2017, this target had been reached and the restoration work began and was completed by February of this year. The organ has been played since April 2018 at Sunday services but this recital will be the first time that its impressive sound will be able to be heard at a public event.

The ticket price will be £5 per person, on the door, with proceeds going to church funds.

Join us on Saturday 3rd November at 7:30pm in the church for what we hope will be a memorable evening!

Gift Day - thank you

It was announced at our service on 7th October 2018 that the substantial sum of £1537 was raised at the St Paul's Gift Day on September 22nd 2018, which also coincided with our three-day Flower Festival.

We extend our thanks to all who contributed to this very welcome addition to church funds which will go a long way towards helping St Paul's to make ends meet this year.

Christening

Cooper Selwood, who lives with his family in Landkey, was Christened at our Family Service on Sunday 7th October 2018. We have been fortunate to have a Christening at each of our three most recent monthly Family Services and, like the earlier ones, this was an enjoyable occasion with Cooper's family and friends joining the regular congregation.
