Church of St Mary and St Gabriel in the Totnes Mission Community

A warm welcome awaits you

With its origins in the 13th century, our church has been at the centre of parish life for generations and remains a focal point in the 21st century, bringing people together, caring for the community and marking significant events in both individual and national life.

Our church building is closed for services but is now open at set times for private prayer and contemplation. We look forward to the time when the building is fully re-opened and to welcoming you again in communal acts of worship. Meanwhile, we continue to be challenged by the current Covid-19 health crisis and to find new ways of working while observing social distancing and government guidelines. The church is in contact with the elderly, the lonely and the vulnerable, and neighbourhoods are coming together to provide invaluable help, support and care for their communities.

If you or someone you know needs help, please contact our parish priest, Rev’d Gill Still.
