• Welcome to the 'Villages Mission Community'.

    We are situated in rural North Devon and comprise the parishes of Heanton Punchardon, Marwood, and West Down.

    Each church has its own 'Flavour' of varied services and activities. There are services each Sunday at all churches. Look closer at our site and you will find a service that suits your taste.

    Marwood and West Down churches are deeply involved in the parish community, whilst Heanton has a more eclectic congregation from the wider community but is still closely involved with village life.

    All three churches are working closer together and support each other as well as their communities. Please visit each church on this site by clicking on the tabs above.

    We also look forward to meeting you, especially if you have moved into the area or are just on holiday.

  • Each church has its own unique characteristics and 'square' tower. We are very fortunate that each tower has a set of six bells in good order that are rung on a regular basis for services and other occasions.

    The churchyards are kept in good order so that vistors and locals alike can take a break and enjoy the peace and tranquilty expected in such surroundings.

    There are always social and community events taking place in the three parishes. Just click on calendar and you will probably see something of interest. Come along to meet and make new friends.
