About Us

For full details about our church and activities, please go to

St Petroc's is part of the Dart and Avon Mission Community.

The mission statement for St Petroc’s states that we are “ a Church with a heart for God and for the whole parish." We describe ourselves as middle of the road in churchmanship. 

We welcome everyone to our church - and look forward to welcoming you soon. 

We want our Church to be open to our community for private prayer. The Church is open from about 9.00am until early evening. The building itself dates from Saxon times and was enlarged at various stages. Most of the building we sees today was in existence in 1436. With considerable financial assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund, together with several church and local charities, we have recently completed a major refurbishment of the Norman tower of St Petroc’s, whilst simultaneously improving both the electricity supply and internal lighting of the Church. The local community energy group has helped us to overhaul the heating system.

We offer a range of services over the course of the year that our community find both beneficial and spiritually fulfilling. Our usual service pattern is as follows:

Ist Sunday of the month - 09.30 Family/All age  Worship

2nd and 4th Sundays - 09.30 Holy Communion

3rd Sunday - 09.30 Morning Worship

5th Sunday - variable

We have a number of active Bible study and prayer groups and World Day of Prayer takes place annually in one of South Brent's churches. ln addition, Lent and Advent Courses are held. There is an active, albeit small Mothers Union Diocesan Member Branch comprising both ladies and gentlemen!

We have a large and flourishing band of bellringers, who, in the past have won the Devon Major 6 Bell-ringing final. We are in the process of creating a bellringing Centre of Excellence at St. Petroc’s.
