Church of England Diocese of Exeter Great Torrington

St Michael and All Angels


We are a friendly, welcoming church rooted in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, committed to dignified worship, and good music. You are most welcome to join us at any of our services.

The Angelus is sung after every Sunday Parish Mass with the Regina Coeli sung during Eastertide.

On Sunday, Sung Parish Mass begins at 10am with full ceremonial, including incense.

Weekday Mass is said on Thursday in St James' Chapel.

The main festivals and seasons of the Church, especially Holy Week, are observed as fully as resources permit.

Her Majesty The Queen is prayed for by name at every service in this church.
