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.

Online Links

Now that the Covid pandemic is gradually abating, we have made some changes to the way news is presented on this page. In the section, we make available the links to online services and our coronavirus procedures. Further down, there is a note on our post-pandemic plans, while news reverts its customary place further on.

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.

News

A delayed return to normality

The news that the lockdown will not be lifted for a further four weeks means that we continue to hold services in the same way as we have since they resumed in church on 4th April 2021. They are held at 10:30am and are also streamed on Zoom for the benefit of anyone who finds it more convenient to take part in worship remotely and the link for this is available above. We are now (since Pentecost) in the period in the liturgical calendar known as Ordinary Time and services for the next few months will use the "normal" Holy Communion liturgy. A copy is available above to be downloaded for use with online services.

We are looking forward to the time, hopefully now just a few weeks away, when will be be able to take part in servcies without wearing face masks and will be able to sing!

Services are also accessible on Revd Shaun's Mission Prayer Programme Facebook page. The link to this is available in the St Paul's Coronavirus Procedures document below.
