St Mary's, Diptford with North Huish
St Mary the Virgin Church in the village of Diptford is next to the school and looks over the valleys towards Dartmoor. The Parish of St Mary the Virgin, Diptford with North Huish is a very welcoming community with a band of bellringers, a church choir, and our popular Messy Church. The school has fortnightly assemblies in the church along with a fortnightly group called PIPs for preschool and reception class children. Our other services include Sung Eucharists, Morning Prayer, Matins and All-Age Communion each month at 11.00am on a Sunday. We hold Bible Studies, we have a Mothers Union Group and we hold soup lunches and pop up Breakfasts from time to time in the Parish Hall. There are three services a year held at St Mary, North Huish by kind permission of the Churches Conservation Trust, Rogation (usually in May), Remembrance (11th November) and a Candlelit Carol Service (December).
