A very warm welcome to the Black Torrington Benefice - one church, five venues.


This rural Benefice comprises four parishes in rural north Devon with five churches. We are part of the Holsworthy Deanery, of the Barnstaple Archdeaconry of the Diocese of Exeter. We worship and work together with Christians of all denominations, particularly the Methodist chapels situated in our villages. The Hope chapel in Black Torrington (part of the Torridge Methodist circuit) in particular works closely with our Benefice.

We hope that the information provided in these pages will convey an impression of our churches and that you may be able to visit us if you are close by. We are sure that you will find five places of peace and great beauty with a deep sense of faith. Signs of a lively church community are all around.

You will find details of the history of each of our churches as well as details of our services. Several of the churches also have active bell ringing teams who compete locally.

Details of social events taking place and main items of news will also be found within these pages. See Black Torrington and Highampton pages for latest news on events.
