Coronavirus – Covid-19 – updated 21 March 2022
Covid-19 Safe for Public Worship
Face coverings in church are now voluntary in church, as elsewhere. But please stay aware of social distancing and use hand sanitizer on entering the building. We are pleased to be serving refreshments after our services and are grateful to those who are making this possible. Please be patient, kind and respect the personal space of other people if they don’t wish to get too close!
At St David’s we encourage people to wear face coverings to come forward to receive Holy Communion and then to consume the host after moving away from the altar rail.
At St Michael’s the priest will distribute Holy Communion to people in their seats.
Please mingle with care before and after services and be mindful not only of your own wellbeing but also of your neighbours’ safety.
Please do not attend church if you are feeling ill or have tested positive for Covid.

The Church building
Our building was designed by W D Caroe and commissioned by Revd C J Valpy French. It was consecrated by the Bishop of Exeter on the 9th January 1900.
The Waterloo hero Alexander Cavalie Mercer is buried in our graveyard.
The church building has recently undergone a transformation, with much-needed repairs to the west end, and a remodelling of the interior to create a warm, open, welcoming space.
Our west door is now open and accessible for everyone to use. The new path also provides step free access to our parish room and west door.
