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.

Following the end of the second lockdown, communal worship has now resumed in church subject to compliance with the current Covid-19 guidance. The principal services will, however, continue to be live streamed and the building will continue to be closed save for private prayer from 10.00 to 12.00 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

While we continue to be challenged by the Covid-19 health crisis, the church is maintaining contact with the elderly, the lonely and the vulnerable, and, together with the wider community, is providing help, support and care for our parish. If you or someone you know needs help, please contact our parish priest, Rev’d Gill Still.
