The first service at St Paul's in 2019 was our Family Service, held on 6th January. As it was Epiphany, Angela Bellamy made the story of the Three Wise Men the subject of her talk to the children. Several members of the congregation whose birthdays fall in January came forward as the service drew to a close to take part in the Birthday Blessing, conducted by Peter Rozzell (centre). These included (l to r), Isabelle Ley, Lizzie Martin, Joseph Ley, Emma Waldron, Hazel Price and Wendy Steggel. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron 7th January 2019.

The St Paul's Nativity play attracted many people into the church on Sunday 23rd December 2018 and, among them, was a large proportion of children. Angela Bellamy was not short, therefore, of actors for the play which she directed without having had a rehearsal. She did a commendable job, though, and was able to use the many willing helpers at her disposal to retell the story of Jesus' birth. In the picture, members of the "cast" gather around Joseph and Mary (centre) for a photocall. The angels are at the back with shepherds and sheep joining in!

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.

Epiphany celebrated in style!

The pews in the church were well filled for our Family Service on Sunday 6th January.

This first service of the new year fell on Epiphany and Angela Bellamy used the occasion to talk about the Three Wise Men to the children present. She brought props with her, including a camel outfit as well as decorated boxes symbolizing gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Bob Loveridge and his family members played the hymns, amongst which were "Come and Join the Celebration" and "We Three Kings" with enthusiasm. The enthusiasm was matched by the singing from the congregation, meaning that Epiphany was celebrated in some style!

Several people came forward to have their birthday, which would be celebrated in January, blessed.
