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.

Garden Party - a wonderful occasion!

When planning an outdoor fundraising event, there are factors beyond the control of the organisers which can determine its success or otherwise.

The Garden Party, held at the Old Manor, Landkey, on 30th June was arranged several months ago to help raise much-needed funds for the church and it was hoped that the weather would not prove to be an obstacle.

It turned out, of course, that the hot and dry weather that been a feature for most of the month of June continued on the day in question, with temperatures reaching almost 30C and the sun shining in a clear blue sky.

As many as 100 local people were tempted by the prospect of cream teas, plant sales, Pimm's, many stalls including a raffle as well as the opportunity to throw wet sponges at Revd Shaun at the "Soak the Vicar" attraction! With the temperature so high, Shaun felt that it was not hardship being doused with water, though!

Adding to the relaxed atmosphere was the band "ONO", whose playing of Jazz/Dixie tunes ("Putting on the Ritz", for example) was appreciated. Equally appreciated was the trio of teenagers who followed ONO with their rendition of popular classics such as "Ode to Joy".

When the money spent during the afternoon was totted up, it was revealed that the record sum of £1010.30 had been raised for church funds. We are grateful to all whose efforts enabled this sum to be raised and especially thank Mike and Josie Foster for hosting this event.
