A warm welcome...

St Mary's is the Parish Church in the village of Willand in Devon.
We are a friendly Anglican church in the heart of our village who welcome people of all ages. Together we seek to understand and share God's love in all we do - if you are interested in finding a lively, friendly, welcoming community we could be the place for you!

You don't need to be a committed Christian to join our services or regular activities, so please do come along and find out more.


Due to the need to restrict movement around the country all Church of England churches and buildings are closed for the foreseeable future. St Mary's church and halls are therefore locked. 

Despite the closure we are still worshipping God together. A written Sunday service is put in the news section (below) each week for your use.

If you would like to have a chat or pray with Rev Simon over the phone please call 01884 562570

When this is all over we will return to Our Regular services:

With this in mind we have a Safeguarding policy which is available in the church hall, church building or by contacting our Parish Safeguarding Officer Mrs S Hancock 01884 35165.

If you have a concern about the safety of someone or the actions of someone working with children or vulnerable adults, please speak to Mrs Hancock.
