Welcome to the
Little Dart Mission Community


The Little Dart Mission Community serves the communities of Burrington, Chawleigh, Cheldon, Chulmleigh, East Worlington, Eggesford, Meshaw, Thelbridge, Wembworthy, West Worlington and Witheridge with Creacombe and Romansleigh.

Situated in the heart of beautiful North Devon countryside between Exter and Barnstaple the Little Dart Mission Community is so named with its proximity to the valley of the Little Dart River. The parishes are essentially rural, with the thriving communities of Chulmleigh and Witheridge with Creacombe.  This group of churches stretches 14 miles from Creacombe in the east to Burrington in the west and is part of the South Molton Deanery within the Archdeaconry of Barnstable in the Diocese of Exeter.

A prayer for the Little Dart Mission Community


High King of Heaven,

Have mercy on our Land.  

Revive your Church.

Send the Holy Spirit for the sake of

the children, the lost, the least, and the broken.

May your Kingdom come to our nation.

In Jesus’ mighty name.



(Based upon the Caleb Prayer from Ffald y Brenin)
