Pop into this beautiful church in the middle of Dartmouth. Peace and quiet awaits you - and there are wonderful windows, architectural features and all the usual adornments of a lovely church

This is really worth a visit. Right in the centre of town. It is hundreds of years old, so is historically interesting apart from the stunning interior.

Once a year, usually a Saturday in early June, the church is open for the public to see the bells being rung by local campanologists under the guidance of a veteran of over 38 years.

We are a welcoming church which meets in Guildford, made up of people from all walks of life and from different backgrounds and cultures. We enjoy being a diverse community all sharing in a common goal of knowing Jesus Christ and making him known in our community.

A lovely and impressive building, with many interesting features, including an ancient and elaborate door, superb chancel screen, magnificent stone pulpit, a fine 18th century organ case somewhat hidden from view in the chancel, and a magnificent brass also in the chancel.

The first thing you notice is the amazing fourteenth century door propped up just inside the south entrance, which still works when replaced on its hinges at closing time. The design, both primitive and dramatic in style, is of two leopards of the Plantagenets attached to a tree of life. Another interesting and attractive feature of this church is the... More

The welcome! The past is there to see and give a location in time and space. The sense of timelessness is profound.

No inclination towards christianity but thought this church was lovely - well looked after, scenic with a nice vibe in the sunny churchyard.
