Thank you for looking us up and let us. be the first to offer you a huge, warm welcome. Ros and I are the Church Wardens here and would love to see you worship with us or answer any questions you may have. Everyone is welcome, whether you have a strong faith, are just curious or wish to attend as a place of reflection or just a good old sing! We all have our own reasons for coming to Church. Best wishes, Caroline
All Saints, Monksilver Church is situated at the food of the Exmoor Hills, a stunning location for our small community of 90 souls. Many people travel through in their holidays and we welcome visitors to worship with us.
All Saints is where Sir Francis Drake married Elizabeth Sydenham, so we are full of ancient stories to discover.
Our congregation is small and older, but we are also full of smiles and experiences to share with you.There is a lively team of bell ringers, of which we are very proud, that meet weekly and ring for our Church services and special occasions, weddings, funerals and National events.
The villagers of Monksilver are exceptionally supportive of All Saints, volunteering to clean, arrange stunning flowers and mow our ancient churchyard, for which we are all very appreciative.
Currently we have a monthly Communion Service at 11am. This follows the beautiful Book of Common Prayer. Although the words are old, we are not stuffy! Often there is fresh coffee and biscuits to follow , or a drop of mulled wine when it’s chilly, so we can have a quick catch up with each other.
Safeguarding information can be found on the 'About Us' page.
