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 relaxation of the guidelines for managing the Covid-19 health emergency, we are delighted to announce that our church building is open at set times both for private prayer and contemplation and, with effect from Sunday 12th July, for communal worship. The set times for prayer and worship are provided below but otherwise the church remains closed. Worship will follow a shortened said service with observance of social distancing and government guidance.

While we continue to be challenged by the current Covid-19 health crisis, we are maintaining contact with the elderly, the lonely and the vulnerable, and with the wider community 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.
