We are an Evangelical Church with various forms of service. We have a choir with music and songs ranging from traditional to modern to suit the service and teaching.
All services from communion to informal celebration are based on teaching the gospel.
Most services are held in church but once a month we meet in the Hall for a more informal gathering. There is always coffee and biscuits and a chance to chat and meet new friends.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 2 Peter 3:10-11 30/11/2023
Church services have returned to normal but Holy Communion will continue to be offered by simultaneous distribution i.e. the priest will dip the wafer in the wine before placing into the hands of the communicant.
Details of Sunday service dates and times are listed in the calendar. There is also a weekly time for prayer on Monday mornings at 9:30am in Heanton Church.
For enquiries regarding baptisms, weddings and funerals contact:
Baptisms usually take place during Morning Praise.
A weekly Lunch club in the church hall is a part of our involvement within the wider community.
Weekly house groups provide an informal method of learning God's will and growing his relationship with each of us. Prayer meetings, informal lunches add to our sense of fellowship.
Church buildings are a valuable resource used for hosting village events, giving many the opportunity to come and meet us in a relaxed informal way.
We are on the top of the hill overlooking the Taw estuary with magnificent views from Barnstaple to Hartland to Lundy. Come and visit us to enjoy the view, pause at the war graves, and then pop into the church.
