Welcome to our church

Risk Assessment for reopening the church

We are very pleased that St Peter’s will be re opening for services from 9th August. Our service pattern for August will be 9th August 10.45 Order 2 Communion; 16th August 10.45 Morning Worship;23rd August 10.45 Order 1 Communion. 30th August will be a Mission Community service at St Paul’s Yelverton 10am Order 1 Eucharist.  Services will be a little different for the time being, with no singing allowed at present, nor will there be any refreshments afterwards. Please bear with us as we adjust to the changing rules        Updated 22/7/20

Our church lies at the heart of the old village of Meavy, next to the village inn, and overlooking the village green. Our Grade 1 listed building has some Norman remains but is mainly from C15th.  Our church parish covers the village of Meavy, part of Dousland, Yelverton, Clearbrook  and the hamlet of Lovaton together with several outlying farms. We have a varied pattern of services and are open to new ideas. We have a good team of volunteers who keep things running smoothly, and a bellringing team for our 6 bells. We are proud of the strong links with our Church of England Primary School in the village who regularly visit the church for services.

St Peter’s lies at the heart of a vibrant community with a forward-looking congregation, which whilst proud to be part of the West Dartmoor Mission Community, is equally proud of our unique identity as the parish church serving our parish.
