Church of England Diocese of Exeter East Portlemouth

St Winwaloe's

Welcome to St Winwaloe's Church, East Portlemouth, in the beautiful South Hams of Devon.

In September we have an Evening Service on 5th September starting at 6pm and a service of Holy Communion at 10am on 19th September. 

In October we are hoping to hold our Annual Harvest Service including the presentation of the fruits of land and sea in the church, followed by an auction of goods and produce in the village hall. We are also intending to hold our Animal Blessing Service later in the month where all are invited to bring their pets, or work animals, or images of animals for a blessing as part of the service. More details about both of these soon. Everyone invited.

With the closure of our building, and some people not being able to give due to the financial impact of the pandemic on them, we cannot receive all the gifts that we usually would, so we really need your help now. If you are able to give more at this time, we would be very grateful for your online donation.

The parish of East Portlemouth, St Winwaloe's, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officers, (PSOs). The Diocese of Exeter’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

Thank you.

Our Vision

God calls us and gives us grace to use the gifts He has given us to grow as a loving and Christ-centred people, faithful in worship, rejoicing in differences, open to the gifts of the Spirit and working as His servants in our communities.

God calls us and gives us grace

We will be open to His voice however it may come to us. Through His strength we will do His work.

To use the gifts he has given us

We rejoice in the many gifts that God gives us. We will use our individual and collective talents to reach out, to serve and communicate the Christian faith to others.

To grow as a loving and Christ-centred people

We will grow in our common worship, deepen our understanding of our faith and draw others into our Christian fellowship. We will foster good relations with other Christians in sharing our journey of faith.

Faithful in worship

We worship the one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As the only Anglican Church in East Portlemouth, we will offer worship for all age groups in Liturgy and Sacrament, in Praise and Prayer.

Rejoicing in differences

We acknowledge and value our different experiences of God. This diversity is a strength to be cherished and supported. We will explore and embrace the richness of faith as understood in a variety of ways in the Church. We rejoice that we are loved as we are, with all our imperfections and at every stage of faith, forgiven and enabled to fulfil our potential as His people.
