Our Churches and Congregations

t Andrew's Church, Bere Ferrers


This is the parish church and was built in the 13th century. It sits on the banks of the River Tavy. (See the history page for more details.) Enthusiastic villagers saved the church from proposed closure in the 1980s. (There are more photos of St Andrew's here and a plan of the church here.) The church is open during the day for prayer and visitors. A bird's eye view is available at https://youtu.be/jgEt3iBwTzQ

Our congregation covers quite a wide range of ages and comes from a wide range of backgrounds - from farming to police, teaching, Navy and architecture. The music for services, which is a combination of traditional and modern, is provided on the organ and on the piano, with a music group leading the Elevenses service each month. Songs of Fellowship and Mission Praise books are regularly used. We would love to see you at any of our varied services (see the Services page) and you will be assured of a warm welcome.

Holy Trinity Church, Bere Alston 


Holy Trinity Church is young compared to St Andrew's, having been built in the mid-1800s, although there was an earlier small Church of England chapel in the village that fell into ruin. The church is open from Monday to Friday during term time until 3pm for prayer and visitors.

Our Bere Alston congregation would also be delighted to welcome you. It is traditional in nature, and has people from a wide range of ages and backgrounds. Music is provided on the organ and Hymns Ancient and Modern is the usual book used. The Service of Holy Communion from the Book of Common Prayer is used once a month.
