Church of England Diocese of Exeter Chawleigh

St James

Welcome to St. James Church, Chawleigh

We are a friendly welcoming group of people who love the Lord and we welcome visitors and new comers with open arms.  We are a mixture of ages and backgrounds and love our small village and surrounding countryside.  Our services are relaxed and family friendly and when we are not in the middle of a global pandemic, we serve refreshments after every service.  

We have Sunday Club for Pre-School and Primary Age children once a month and we are looking at new ways in which we can serve our local community as we come out of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Do get in touch with one of the clergy to find out more and look at our services information and events page.
