The Church of St. George the Martyr, Dean Prior, is a delightful 14th Century church offering a rich heritage, a warm welcome and an atmosphere of friendly fellowship and quiet, spiritual reflection. 

The services are normally traditional with Holy Communion from the Book of Common Prayer and readings from the King James Bible, but we enjoy a range of hymns, traditional and modern.

The village surrounding the church once included a school and cottages, but many of these were pulled down to build the new road, and as a result the church only has a few neighbouring houses, while much of the parish is the other side of the A38 Devon Expressway.

The parish is now part of a united benefice with St Luke's, Buckfastleigh.

We are a small congregation of largely retired parishioners who love Dean Prior Church and we also very much welcome young people and families.

There is a warm welcome at Dean, but you are advised to wrap up warmly in the winter months when visiting the church.

Lovers of the 17th century English poet Robert Herrick may be aware that he was the Dean Prior Vicar from 1629 to 1674, except during the Cromwellian period when he was evicted.

PLEASE NOTE - there is parking behind the church, (reached by turning off the southbound A38 immediately beyond the church), and also a few spaces in front of the church. Please take great care - the A38 is very busy!
