Church of England Diocese of Exeter Combpyne with Rousdon

St Mary the Virgin, Combpyne

COMBPYNE. Set in the ‘coombe’ of Combpyne, St, Mary the Virgin Church serves the joint parish of Combpyne and Rousdon. 

It dates back to the 13th century and is Grade ll* listed.  Notable features include the saddleback tower roof, two of the three bells among the oldest in Devon and a drawing of a ship – possibly as old as the 14th century – on one of the walls in the nave. 

Normally the church is open every day but at present, under the Covid restrictions, just on Sundays and Wednesdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. 

Apart from special seasonal services, there will usually be two every month – Morning Worship on the first Sunday and Holy Communion on the third – both starting at 10 a.m. St Mary’s is the smallest of the eight churches in the Axe Valley Mission Community but is well loved, welcoming and definitely worth a visit!
