We belong to the Church of England and are part of the Diocese of Exeter. There are currently fourteen active churches, including a ‘Chapel of Ease’ within the Okehampton and Northmoor Churches Team Ministry. There is also St Mary’s of Ashbury which does not have services on a regular basis.
What we stand for
We are proud to be part of the Christian Church around the world and to affirm our unity with other Churches in the town. We understand the purpose of the Church to be:
Telling the good news of God’s love for the world as shown to us in Jesus Christ.
Enabling Christians to grow in their understanding of God and of their faith
Playing our full part in the life of the town, helping it to be a safe and healthy community, seeking ways to put our faith into practice.
Recognizing injustice in all its forms, speaking out against it and seeking to overcome it.
Acknowledging our responsibility for the created world and trying to live in a sustainable way.
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful churches.
