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


We employ a traditional form of worship, using Common Worship (CW) and the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), with services ranging from the small, intimate gathering to full-scale Choral Evensong.

NOTE: As from September 2nd 2018, Choral Eucharist and Choral Matins moves to 11.15am

At 11.15am and 6.30pm and festival services, singing is led by the choir, accompanied by the organ.

When there is a fifth Sunday in a month, churches of the Mission Community take it in turn to host a 10.30am Team Eucharist. On these occasions there is no morning service in Stoke Gabriel (unless it is hosting the Team Eucharist).

When there is no morning service, we hold a Special Choral Evensong at 6.30pm with full choir and organ.

For children

Children are welcome at all our services and there is a children’s corner in church

At Christmas, Easter and at other times though the year, we organise informal activity sessions for young children to introduce them to the significance of festivals of the Christian Calendar.
