Circulating of Photographs

We respectfully ask that photographs of persons at our Church activities, are not circulated or uploaded to social media including Facebook, unless you have sought the prior permission of those in the photograph.

Thank-you for your assistance in protecting and safeguarding all persons in our care, including the young and the vulnerable.

Our beautiful and historic church is in need of significant repairs to both the roof and tower and we are currently applying for Grants towards the cost as well as actively fundraising within the Parish.  

 A Tractor Run has been organised and will be held on 27 August, in aid of Devon Air Ambulance and Holy Cross Church, Highampton. Click HERE for details.

The Tamar Valley Male Voice Choir, with soloist Bob Westlake, performed at the highly successful concert held in Highampton Village Hall on Saturday 18 March, in aid of the Highampton Church Restoration Fund. The leading soloist at the concert was Bob Westlake, a former resident of Highampton, widely known in the local area. His popularity ensured a large audience for the event.


Our sincere thanks to the choir for a very enjoyable musical evening, to all those who came and to all the helpers. The concert raised in excess of £750 towards the church repairs and we are most grateful for this valuable contribution.

Thanks also for all those who helped at the Cream Tea afternoon, held on the 30 July.
