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. Following the easing of restrictions relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, a monthly pattern of services has been reinstated, albeit with safeguards and the possibility of change at short notice.

For Children

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

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