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.

Happy New Year!

We wish all visitors to our website a happy New Year. We hope that 2022 will be a better year than the two previous Covid-affected years and that church worship will increasingly be held under normal circumstances.

We were able to hold our Carols by Candlelight service on 19th December, as well as our Christmas Mass on 24th December but, unfortunately, we were unable to hold our Nativity and Christingle services due to Covid. The Carols and Mass were quite well attended and were very enjoyable.

Services continue to be held as normal at the usual time of 10:30am (unless otherwise advertised) on Sundays and all are welcome to join us!

Covid guidance from 10th December 2021

Following the government's toughening of Covid rules on 9th December 2021, the Church of England has updated its recently-issued guidance on procedures which churches might choose to adopt to minimise the spread of infection.

The main requirement of these changes is for congregation members to wear face masks at all times during the service, even while singing. While there are no rules covering other infection-limiting procedures, we would encourage congregation members practice social distancing and to make use of the hand sanitisers available. A negative Lateral Flow Test beforehand would also be helpful, though not required.

The latest guidance, effective from 10th December 2021, is given here:

Future Plans

St Paul’s: A Church for the Future?
The events of the past year have had unwelcome effects on many village organisations, including St Paul’s. Restrictions caused by the pandemic are, thankfully, easing and we are now focusing our attention on the future. We believe that there is support for St Paul’s from within our growing parish and we would like to build on that to create a church which will serve the needs of its community in the years ahead. Among plans under consideration is the installation of a toilet to help make the building more versatile. Opening the building more often than just on Sunday mornings is an objective, as is the wish to broaden the range of services held, while retaining their reverence. We now have an internet connection making the streaming of services online possible and we would like to upgrade the current technology to reduce our reliance on printed material. Landkey is fortunate to have a beautiful historic church in its midst and it is our aim to ensure that its future is secured for generations to come! If you would like to be a part of this endeavour, please feel free to get in touch through our Contact Us page. 8th August 2021
