Welcome

Our church is at the heart of the vibrant town of Chagford, in the Dartmoor National Park, Devon. We are part of a family of churches, the Whiddon Mission Community, which seek to show God’s love in this beautiful part of the country in real and practical ways, learn more of the ways of Jesus and be inspired by what the Holy Spirit is doing among our communities.

Everyone of whatever tradition, and none, will find a warm welcome here.

Our church family is made up of all types of different people, some who have been Christians for many years and others who are just beginning the messy journey of faith. We believe that everyone is equally precious to God, regardless of age and gender, including those who may not regard themselves as ‘churchgoers’. For Jesus, there are no ‘outsiders’. St Michael’s is a part of the Church of England (ie. we are ‘Anglican’) in the Diocese of Exeter.

It is an exciting time for us as we look to build on the work and witness of past generations and learn new ways of nurturing faith – not least with our young people, and through variety in the ways we worship – and supporting and listening to our community.

Our beautiful church building, dedicated to St Michael the Archangel, has been a place of prayer, peace and hospitality for close on a millennium. Come and see…

Our worship embraces both traditional services, led by our choir, and more contemporary and informal worship. There are also regular times of contemplative stillness and reflective music, open to all (‘The Well’) as well as a range of musical and dramatic events through the year. There are also opportunities to meet in small groups for discussion, questions and good company throughout the week.

St Michael’s is open every day of the week and we look forward to welcoming you here.
