Gentle and Lowly

St Mary Magdalene Church in Chulmleigh will move away from the lectionary to look at a new study over the coming weeks.


On Sunday 13 June 2021 we will start on a new shared teaching series looking at the book “Gentle and Lowly - The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers” by Dane Ortlund.


Christians know what Jesus Christ has done—but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” This book reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who he is for sinners and sufferers today.


The study will develop further our understanding and experience of God through Jesus and will build upon our journey through the Old Testament and John Mark Comer's book God has a Name on God’s own description of himself to Moses found in Exodus 34: 4-7.

The Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene is a Grade I listed building, with a prominent four stage tower over ninety feet high, completed in 1520 and restored in the 1950s.


Its castellated top and granite pinnacles are impressive and support the weather vanes that, with the chiming clock, were restored by the community within the last ten years.


Although possibly a tenth century building no medieval architecture survives, because of extensive 'restoration' during the nineteenth century.  Even so the fifteenth century octagonal font, the wagon roof and the fifty-foot long carved wooden rood screen are important historical features, as are several nineteenth century stained-glass windows


The tower houses a heavy ring of eight bells which, with their lovely tone, are a joy to ring. The Friends of Chulmleigh Parish Church are active fund-raisers and contribute much to the maintenance of the building.


The church is used by the Academy for its Harvest and Christmas services and by the Town for its Old Fair service and British Legion Parade Service of Remembrance in November. The church is host to Chulmleigh Society concerts, including some by the Young Musicians Support, and drama, as well as the North Devon and Children's Hospice Christmas ‘Light up a Life’ service.
