Our Building

The church building was constructed in 1563 and contains relics from the previous chapel built before 1066. In 1569 Sir Francis Drake was married here to Mary Newman. The church was the site of two battles during the civil war when it was almost destroyed. It was restored in 1655 and is a Grade II* listed building.

Groups, Courses and Activities

Identity Youth Church meets at 10:30am in the Hall every Sunday apart from the first Sunday of the month when we are at Turning Point. Whenever there's a fifth Sunday, we do it more as a social event where we just play games and talk etc. It is a brilliant mix of fun activities and helpful bible teaching for young people of a secondary school age. Its aim is to give them courage and confidence to live out their Christian faith in today's world.

FROGs is our club at St Budeaux Foundation School and has been running on Mondays straight after school for over 10 years. There are refreshments, lots of games and fun, lively Christian songs, Bible Stories and prayer, and a prize game to end with, as the children and leaders learn together to Fully Rely On God.
Frog Squad points, volley ball, the children praying, the dog biscuit games, noise and quiet, big questions, wink murder, splat, Ace Foundations, the Custard Cream Song, God being with us - these are just some of the classic FROGs ingredients. And it is free!

Alpha courses run on a regular basis.

Members of the church are encouraged to join one of a number of small groups that meets in homes each week. These groups have a focus on Bible study, prayer and fellowship.

Fun on The Green is an annual event which takes place on a Sunday in early summer. It begins with an open air informal service on the Green followed by fun and games, entertainment and free refreshments until 3:00pm.
The games and entertainment vary from year to year but usually include a bouncy castle, craft, a BBQ and face-painting, plus many traditional games.

The church is a centre for Christians Against Poverty and as has members trained to give debt advice through that charity.

There are two groups for parents and toddlers. They run on Tuesday and Friday mornings in the Church Hall.
