Coronavirus guidance from the Church of England

In light of the Government guidance, the Church of England has said that all churches are to close to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. So for the time being St Edmund's Church building remains closed, except for Individual Prayer and Reflection (see News  & Notices for more information).  

The Church garden does remain open. 

When we are permitted to reopen our church buildings St Edmund's is normally open from 9am to 5pm (4pm in winter months) Monday to Saturday. 

When permitted  we will open for services on Sundays (excluding the second Sunday)   at 11.10am. 

All welcome.

Getting here

St Edmund's Church was consecrated in 1414, although a chapel existed on the site from the early 13th century. 

 The Church has a three-manual pipe organ over 150 years old, a bell tower with a peal of 8 bells and a number of attractive and unique stained glass windows.


Access to the Church and Church grounds is via the  steep and narrow steps between the Merlin Cinema and the Shambles. 

The nearest church with ramp access for wheel chair users is at St Thomas of Canterbury : Church Street, Dodbrooke, Devon, TQ7 1NW


The church remains open daily for visitors unless otherwise stated.

Please do come and enjoy our beautiful church and grounds, in which dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads. Picnic tables available.
