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.

Remembrance

Members of St Paul's Church took a leading role on Remembrance Sunday, 10th November 2019.

The service took place at 10:00 am in Landkey village hall and was led by Chris James. In his sermon, Chris reminded the gathered church members and village residents of the awful losses of human life during the D-Day landings. He drew inspiration from the work of West Country poet, David Prowse whose poem, "Normandy", evoking the emotions of that time, was especially poignant.

The 40 or so people who met in the village hall were joined by many more at the war memorial, swelling numbers to as many as 100 to observe the Act of Remembrance. Wreaths were laid by Bill Parker on behalf of Landkey Parish Council and by Tom Wilks on behalf of St Paul's Church.

This year, the war memorial was draped with a garland of 365 knitted poppies, one for each day since the last Remembrance Day. The industrious knitters were revealed to be Karen Trigger, Sue Ackland, Anita Thorne and Liz Davis. Their work received a round of applause!
