Welcome

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

Sunday services 

During this current lockdown we are allowed to use our church buildings. They are available for individual prayer. Most are open. But if the building is locked, do ask for a key, as you want to use the place. 

We can hold public services, however, for most of our churches, we have felt that it is not appropriate to hold services as this time. The encouragement is to ‘stay at home’, and we do have the weekly provision of both the Online Service and the Phone Service. 

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


Church by phone - Sundays at 4pm. Phone 0330-606-0403. You will be asked for an access code: 251417
