St Peter ad Vincula (St Peter in Chains) is part of the Ashwater Benefice, with Black Torrington and Highampton.
A warm welcome to all vistors to our site, especially during these difficult times - Ashwater, Beaworthy, Halwill, Tetcott with Luffincott, Clawton, Black Torrington, Highampton, or wherever you might be. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ.
Ashwater church remains closed, because we are unable to comply with the necessary requirements to open the building for private prayer.
The nearest churches open for private prayer are Tetcott and Halwill.
Special arrangements apply for funerals

For the time being Ashwater Parish Church remains locked, but the time is coming closer when it will be open again, perhaps for private devotion at first, and then for public worship. What a
joyful day that will be, though one tinged with sorrow for the people who have suffered during the current pandemic.
In the meantime we carry on the best we can, hopefully keeping some record of how our time has been spent.
It is hoped that the Ashwater Unlocked project will form part of our thanksgiving for the end of the current crisis.
Information about this project has been disseminated by various means.There are also hard copies in the village shop. Ask for a copy to be included with your groceries, if the shop delivers them to you. It would be very helpful to know if this idea has appealed to anybody. If you are interested, could you let Trevor May know? E-mail: email@example.com. Telephone 211523. You can get more information from him, including copies of the first two bulletins
Although we can't visit each other, we can still keep in touch, by phone, email or by writing a letter.
