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.

Tolling of the bell

In recognition of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the bell was tolled for one hour from 11am on 9th September 2022:

It seems scarcely possible that we were ringing a full peal of the bells in celebration of Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee as recently as 2nd June 2022:

Harvest Service

Our Harvest Service,  held on 25th September,  was an enjoyable occasion and was well attended. A few of those in the pews were congregation members who had been unable to come to church for some time, so it was especially pleasing to see them in St Paul’s again.

The service was led by Revd Jackie Giddings who used her sermon to highlight the importance of giving to ensure that the work of the church can continue. It was a theme chosen to coincide with the St Paul’s Gift Day which took place on the same day.

Many congregation members stayed behind afterwards to enjoy a bring-and-share lunch.

Covid practices further relaxed

News of Covid-19 has faded into the background as other concerns have taken precedance in recent months. However, we continue to be aware of its presence while returning the practices adopted to limit the spread of infection in our church to as close to normal as possible.

Our latest relaxation has been to offer the bread and wine during Holy Communion at the altar rail again, rather than at the entrance to the choir area. This was introduced at our Harvest service on 25th September and it was good to see so many people at the altar rail again after a gap of 2½ years!

We base our Covid procedures on the current guidance from the Church of England, dated 18th July 2022, a copy of which is available here:
