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.

Candlemas

At our Family Service on Sunday 2nd February we will be celebrating Candlemas. 

Candlemas is the time in the Christian calendar when the Presentation of Christ at the temple in Jerusalem is recalled. Forty days after Jesus's birth, his parents brought him to the temple in Jerusalem in accordance with the law of Moses that this act should be carried out for all new-born children. The ritual would have involved the offering of a sacrifice which might have been in the form of a pair of turtle doves or two young pigeons (Luke 2, v24).

Candlemas is also noteworthy for falling midway between Christmas and the arrival of spring. In Eastern Orthodox churches, this is the time when Christmas decorations are finally taken down!

As always, all will be welcome to join us at this service.

Birthdays galore!

January is a busy month for birthdays at St Paul's and Angela Bellamy went to a great deal of trouble to make two cakes to celebrate the occasions after our service on 19th January 2020.

Wendy Steggel was shortly to reach her 70th birthday while organist Bob Loveridge, churchwarden Hazel Price and Emma Waldron's birthdays were imminent. Church members Chris James and Michael Gee also celebrate in this month but were not present for the cake cutting!

Thank you, Angela, for making such delicious and attractive cakes! It made for a very enjoyable occasion!
