The Ashburton and Moorland Mission Community

We are a group of nine Anglican and three Methodist churches, in and around the fringes of Dartmoor. Each plays its part at the heart of a vibrant town or village. We feel that our churches are not only beautiful in their own right, but also that they embody our unique local history, community and wealth of Christian values.

We want all visitors to feel welcome in our churches. These are places where everyone is invited to explore or deepen their faith.

All services and events can be found on our website or by clicking the following link: Services (  

Our churches


We want our churches to be places and communities where people can feel welcome, can easily belong and be safe. Our full Safeguarding Statement can be downloaded at the bottom of the page.
