Welcome to The Yealm and Erme Mission Community

COVID-19 Update

In light of the current lockdown and the government’s stance in devolving responsibility to the local church and in response to the increasing instances of covid in our communities, the PCCs of the Mission Community and Team Rector have jointly made the decision to suspend public worship in all six churches.
This decision will be under regular review and we will re open for Sunday worship when it is sensible to do so.
We will be asking the Bishop of Exeter to grant a dispensation to do this.
The 10am Zoom service will continue on Sundays and you will be warmly welcomed.
Morning Prayer will be taking place at 9am each morning, as we go forward.
If you are struggling in this time, we are only a phone call away,
God bless,
Alan and Kim

Electoral Roll Revision

It’s that time of year when we need to revise our electoral rolls in preparation for the Annual Parochial Church Meetings. You need to be on the roll to attend and vote at these meetings. Application forms with details as to who is eligible for the roll can be downloaded here

We are a benefice of 6 churches located in the beautiful South Hams.

We see our churches as a community we belong to, not just a place we go to. Although our buildings are beautiful the real essence of our community is the people.
Everyone is welcome at any of our services, which provide different flavours of both traditional and contemporary worship.
We live in a strange new world that none of us have encountered before. Whether you have been a Christian your whole life or are just trying to make sense of life, hopefully you will be able to encounter God through some of what we can offer here. We don’t have all the answers but we know the One who does.


Church Opening

Four of our churches are open every Sunday for private prayer from 9pm-6pm.

  • St Bartholomew’s, Yealmpton is closed until further notice
  • Wembury Church and car park will be closed from Monday 17th August for the next 2-4 weeks due to works being carried out to the church tower.

The churches will not be open during the week, so that we can maintain sufficient closed time to sanitise.
Please note: Every visitor is required to wear a face covering.See full details
