A very warm welcome to our church

Hello and welcome to the website of Ashwater Parish Church, named St Peter ad Vincula, or St Peter in Chains. Our church was built in the 12th Century and has a wonderful and interesting history. The church is situated in the middle of the picturesque village of Ashwater, just south of the market town of Holsworthy. The church has served this community for hundreds of years, and we are currently working on refurbishing the building so it will last many more hundreds of years. St Peters church is part of the Ashwater Benefice, which includes the parishes of Clawton, Halwill, Tetcott with Luffincott and Beaworthy, as well as Ashwater. The current benefice priest, Rev Jane Lucas is based at the Rectory in Ashwater.



There are services at St.Peters every Sunday at 09.30am except for any months that have 5 Sundays. In this case there is a Benefice Service in one of the churches. Details on the Services page.

We look forward to you joining us.
