It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Her Majesty the Queen. Our condolences are with the Royal Family and all who mourn her.

An online book of condolence, prayers and liturgy for churches and schools is on the Church of England websiteClick here 

This link shows where the physical books are, with a link to the Royal website for the online version. They also offer to take a message over the phone as a third option.


A Commemoration Service marking the death of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be held at 6pm on Wednesday 14th September 2022 in Talaton Parish Hall.



Temporary church closure

The church will be closed for services and visitors from Monday 1st August 2022.  We are carrying out much needed work – including – improving the lighting, window repairs and redecoration.

We apologise that you will be unable to go inside during this time, but it will be scaffolded with work being done overhead.  Watch this space for updates and for when we can reopen.

In the meantime, look at what’s going on in other churches in the benefice.


Hopefully we will be open again

St James the Great Church, Talaton

Key Information:

About the Church:

Nestled in one of Devon’s best kept villages – Talaton – St James the Great Church is open every day during daylight hours.  The church at Talaton is a very fine Grade I church, outstanding even in an area of the country graced with many other beautiful churches.  For nearly a thousand years there has been a place of Christian worship at this site and it is fairly certain that a small Norman church stood here in the 12th century. Its late Norman font still stands in the current church, much of which dates from the 15th century, replacing a smaller, simpler church.
