Churchwarden - Gilian Davis

Regular Services:

Sundays at 10:30

We are a friendly welcoming group of people who love the Lord and we welcome visitors and new comers with open arms. We are a mixture of ages and backgrounds and love our small village and surrounding countryside. Our services are relaxed and family friendly and when we are not in the middle of a global pandemic, we serve refreshments after every service.


We are looking at new ways in which we can serve our local community as we come out of the Covid-19 pandemic. Do get in touch with one of the clergy to find out more and for service details, in church and online, please see the weekly news sheet which provides contact details for those wishing to attend servcies.  Prebooking is required for services held in the church to ensure a space is available as we have limited space due to the need for Covid-19 Secure Measures.


Chawleigh is currently posting videos of their services online and these can be seen on the Little Dart Mission Community YouTube Channel

Upcoming Services and Events:

Sunday Club

Sunday Club held on the 4th Sunday of each month in the Jubilee Hall Chawleigh from 10:30am to 12:00 & is Free for Pre-School and Primary Age children

The first recorded priest of the church was Richard de Grangiis in 1279 but the present building is almost entirely a 15th century structure, considerably embellished around 1840. The rood screen extends across the nave and aisle and is a delight to the eye but the intricate carving does tend to separate the small choir and organist from the rest of the church. A local band ring the bells hanging in the tapering tower; the Local Ministry Team, small choir and regular organist all help to maintain welcoming weekly Sunday morning services. This together with various other activities gives a Christian presence in the village.
