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.

During the current lockdown, services of communal worship may continue in church but are restricted and strictly subject to Covid safeguards. Otherwise, the building remains closed save for private prayer from 10.00 to 12.00 from Monday to 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 Rev’d Gill Still.
