About Us

'Living and Sharing the Story of Jesus'

We aim to be a church at the heart of our community, offering a place of belonging for all. We welcome you to join us in our Sunday Worship and other activities.

St Mary's was originally a Priory Church established in the 11th Century as an outreach of Malmesbury Abbey. Pilton is the oldest district of Barnstaple, adjoining the north-west end of the town centre.
