Following the Prime Minister's announcement on 23 March 2020, St James' church is now closed.
In the these unsettling times please do continue to join us in prayer from wherever you are.
Please see the Haldon Mission Community website for the latest information.
For nine centuries, St James' Parish Church has sat at the heart of West Teignmouth.
For nine centuries the people of West Teignmouth have gathered in the church to celebrate their weddings and the births of their children. They have gathered to mourn their loved ones and to remember those who were lost at sea or whose final resting place is in a foreign field. For nine centuries the people of West Teignmouth have gathered in St James’ to share and join together in their worship.
Today, in the 21st century, St James' still stands as a constant reminder of our shared Christian heritage. We gather to share in our worship; we welcome the celebrations of love in marriage and of new birth; we share in the pain of bereavement.
Today, St James’ is a place of stillness and calm in the busyness of life.
Today, St James’ remains a Christian presence at the heart of West Teignmouth, and we welcome you...

Finding Stability in Times of Change
In these rather strange and disconcerting times, it is good that there is a plethora of resources and information available to enable people to pray and worship from home.
Richard Frost, one of our Readers, has put together 3 films which could be used to provide a basic structure for a personal Quiet Day. These were developed from a Quiet Day he led at St Lawrence's, Biddulph in January and was due to led at St Luke's Bath just last Saturday. The topic 'Finding Stability in Times of Change' has perhaps taken on a new relevance in this current period.
The films can be watched through http://workrestpray.com/films/
May God bless you and reassure you in the current times.
Following the Prime Minister's broadcast on 23 March, our church buildings will no longer be open.
However, as the Archbishops of Canterbury and York said last week, ‘Far from having to “shut up shop”, the Church of England must face the challenge by becoming a radically different kind of church rooted in prayer and serving others.’
More details may be found on the Haldon Mission Community website.
