Lovely country church

The building itself is old, tranquil and traditional. However, the short tenure of a "trendy vicar" caused the old wooden pews to be removed and replaced by red canvas chairs. A... read more

The impressive tree is apparently a thousand years old and one of the oldest on the south coast. The interior has been considerably updated and has lost virtually all the atmosphere typical of most churches of this age. The organ is a nice (small) instrument but overall this place lacks "soul" - somewhat ironic for a church. Worth calling by... More

There is a lovely walk from Lyme Regis to Uplyme. When you reach Uplyme you can turn right to the church or left to the pub. We did both. A nice little church which has suffered some modernisation. Well worth a look.

Uplyme was a small farming community when I used to walk from Rocombe to Mrs Ethelston's Church Primary School with it's three rooms. We did have school milk and a full cooked lunch though. Dreary wartime days, then., I watched the Coronation shown by Graham Newberry on a monochrome (12 inch?) screen strapped to a central pillar - the church... More

The Church is pretty old, but inside it has been nicely modernised with modern, more comfortable seating. We liked this. Some may prefer the old pews, but this has brought it up to date, and we found it very welcoming & warm.

The village church has turned from a sweet traditional church to a utilitarian. With red covered conference chairs and most of the traditional we know and love about a C of E Church in this part of the world has gone. I feel this space is now a extension of the Village hall not a place of quiet contemplation. If... More

Uplyme church boasts lively music a welcoming congregation a beatboxing vicar interesting talks and very good free coffee and biscuits. There's a Junior church for kids. Probably not for those who want quiet traditional worship (although they have that in the evenings) but a really good place for a recharge of spiritual batteries or to seek answers relating to the...
