Cockington Parish Churches

Welcome to Cockington Parish Churches - the Church of England Parish of Cockington with Chelston, located in beautiful Torquay.  We aim to be a church without walls, but also have three church buildings - St George & St Mary, Cockington; St Matthew's, Chelston; and St Peter's Church Centre, Chelston.  The parish includes beaches, a country park, a local shopping centre and, most importantly, lots of houses.  One of our churches is 950 years old this year - a chance to celebrate - yet we are not stuck in the past. We focus on community and long to engage more with all our local residents.

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) update 16th May 2020: Some of the measures we put in place to prevent spread of the virus have been superseded by today's announcement from the Prime Minister.  To avoid all unnecessary contact, tomorrow's 9.45am Holy Communion at St Peter's has been cancelled.  We are currently looking at alternative ways to provide spiritual, pastoral and practical care, and will continue to update here, and on social media.

Safeguarding: Our parish safeguarding policy is available on the Safeguarding page of each church.  Alternatively, for national safeguarding information, please see the hyperlinked word "Safeguarding" at the bottom of every page on this site.  If you have any concern or query regarding safeguarding our Parish Safeguarding Representatives are Chris (01803 295469) and Gill (07947 604160).
