PLEASE NOTE - Due to the Coronavirus Crisis the church buildings are closed until further notice.
But the church family is still here for you. Please make use of the various information on this website.
Exeter Diocese has been developing Mission Communities since 2006. These are groups of parishes in the same locality who share the same ministry team, and a common vision, whilst each church still maintains its own identity.
WELCOME to the South Molton Mission Community (legally South Molton Benefice) which comprises nine churches spread across a large area of rural North Devon. See map.
You can contact the Team Rector, or Team Vicar, if you have any prayer requests, or would like to receive newsletters, an occasional phone call, or other occasional mailings from any of our churches.

The Christian Symbolism:
- The circle, because it has no beginning or end, is symbolic of eternity. It is used most often as a reference to God.
- The plain shepherd's crook is a reminder of Jesus, the Good Shepherd.* ( It also reminds us that our Mission Community historically, and even to this day, is an agricultural area of which sheep farming plays an important part.)
- The initials form, in conjunction with the crook, a cross which is the chief sign of the Christian church. It is a reminder that Jesus Christ is the centre of our Christian faith.
Safeguarding children and adults at risk of harm is everyones responsibility. Please go to our SAFEGUARDING page for further information.
