Coronavirus Update

Opening our Church buildings for worship.
We are putting a tentative foot in the water this week-end with a service at Newton St. Petrock on Sunday 12th July at 11:00.
Assuming all goes to plan, we will look to repeating that at Shebbear the following week, and probably Langtree the week following. Others may happen as well. We'll be learning week by week how it all goes.
We are doing this very much on a Team-wide basis, so if you would like to part of a service gathered together in one place, please feel free to go to a church other than you own if that's where the service that week is. If lots come, we will face that problem when it happens!
As you do come, please do be aware that the service will be different. There will be no singing, we will have to sit well apart. And Communion will be just with the bread/ wafer. 
But still we will be together, however many or few we will be - and God us with us. 

Clearly not everybody will want to join in a service in one of our buildings - some very definitely still shouldn't at this time; others won't want to. The Online Service remains and will remain, as does the Service by Phone. 

Sunday Online  - go to our Church On Line page to join in with our service.

Church by phone - Sundays at 4pm.                                                                                                                   You will need a telephone number and access code.

In these strange and for some very difficult times, I return to this wonderful blessing by John O’Donohue.


A warm welcome from the nine churches collectively known as the Torridge Team Ministry, comprising the churches at Buckland Filleigh, Huish, Langtree, Merton, Newton St Petrock, Peters Marland, Petrockstowe, Shebbear and Sheepwash.

We are in the heart of rural North Devon's agricultural area surrounded by beautiful countryside where our local farmers work hard to produce our food and look after God's Gift of creation.

Please look through our pages to find out a little more about our beautiful old churches. If you can't find what you are looking for please contact the office HERE
