St Mary Magdalene is part of the Parish of South Molton with Nymet St.George, and of the extensive South Molton Mission Community.

Whether you visit us for a service, for some quiet personal reflection, or just to have a look, whoever you are, and whatever you believe, you are welcome.

People have worshipped here for many centuries, seeking a closer relationship with God. 

This large fine Grade 1 listed building, is the 'civic church' of the town (hosting the town's Olde English Fayre, Carnival and Remembrance Services) and is situated just off the town centre, tucked away behind the main shopping street. We have close links with the nearby Church of England Primary School.

The Team Rector welcomes enquiries on any matter. We are keen to serve the town and the local community. 

Please go to our website for more information.  

** We have launched our £250,000 PROTECT APPEAL with the aim of  replacing the roof on the south aisle, and hopefully also making some internal improvements. Please go to our dedicated appeal website for more information.
