The Parish Church of Saint Peter and Saint Mary Magdalene is the ancient town centre Anglican church in Barnstaple, where a warm and friendly welcome is extended to everyone. Worship is 'modern catholic' in style, using "Common Worship" liturgy for all Masses.  The music is mostly traditional and the 'New English Hymnal' is the main hymn book in use.  We are a 'Forward in Faith' parish, Resolutions A and B have been passed, but we are not in any sense militant, narrow or exclusive in outlook, since we believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ is about bringing his love to all people, regardless of our various differences. We aim to be an inclusive church where everyone is welcome, irrespective of age, gender, marital status, sexuality, nationality, disability or background.  Each of us is a Child of God, valued and loved by him, and we all have gifts and talents to contribute and share. 

The church building is open during the week and there are regular weekday services and events. Visitors and those new to the area are most welcome and we look forward to meeting you. If you join us as a worshipper please make yourself known.  Should you require further help or information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sunday

PARISH MASS
Every Sunday we celebrate with joy the Resurrection of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, as Christians have done since the very earliest days of the Church. We find our inspiration in the New Testament: "And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." (Acts 2:42). This we do faithfully
