The Remembrance service and wreath-laying ceremony on Sunday 11th November 2018 were attended by many, possibly over 100, Landkey residents. The service and ceremony were both led by Reader Chris James who was supported by many others associated with St Paul's Church and village organisations. Here, Chris (left) pauses before the Act of Remembrance began just before 11am, exactly 100 years after the signing of the Armistice in France in 1918. He is joined by John Hayes (Standard Bearer for the Burma Star Association), Lieutenant Tom Wilks and Colour Sergeant David Green, both of whom were about to lay wreaths.

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 1800, 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 Sunday

The Remembrance service and wreath-laying ceremony on Sunday 11th November 2018 were attended by many Landkey residents.

The service was held in Landkey village hall and it is likely that as many as 70 people attended. The service was led by Reader Chris James and the main message of his talk was the terrible cost in human lives even on the last day of the conflict in 1918 when as many as 10000 troops perished just before hostilities ceased.

Chris also led the wreath-laying ceremony at the war memorial after the service where more Landkey residents gathered to pay their respects, swelling numbers to over 100. Wreaths were laid by Lieutenant Tom Wilks on behalf of St Paul's Church and by Colour Sergeant David Green on behalf of Landkey Parish Council. Also supporting was John Hayes, Standard Bearer for the Burma Star Association.

Organ concert - thank you, Bob and family!

On Saturday 3rd November, Bob Loveridge led a concert which featured classic pieces for the organ. It also included orchestra sections during which Bob was joined by his family members, Anya-Jade and Mark. It was the first time that the 1877-built organ had been played at a public event since it was restored earlier in 2018.

It was an enjoyable evening and the efforts made by Bob and his family to put on this event were much appreciated.
