ABOUT US

“Living in community as God’s people; serving the wider community in God’s world”

Set in a beautiful corner of Devon, skirting Dartmoor National Park, St Andrew’s Buckland Monachorum and the Church of the Holy Spirit Milton Combe are both welcoming, vibrant, mission-focused, outward-looking, Spirit-led, evangelical congregations with the more traditional element found within Milton Combe.


We believe in Jesus as the only way we can connect with God. He is at the centre of everything we believe and everything we do.


We believe that the Bible is the main way that God speaks to humanity and so, reliant on the Holy Spirit to direct our hearts and minds, it’s to the Bible that we turn to for God’s authoritative teaching on who He, and what life in His world is all about.


We believe in the power of prayer. We want our individual lives, our homes and our churches to be places where priority is given to seeking God in prayer.


We believe in mission; spreading the love of God through evangelism, social interaction, and community engagement, as well as supporting mission partners in other parts of the world. We believe that ‘the chief purpose of humanity is to worship God and enjoy him forever’. We realise that worship is a matter of giving our lives as living sacrifices and as such encompasses all our activity.


We believe the gospel is good news for old and young alike. We employ a full-time youth and children’s worker and engage with our local Church of England primary school in a variety of ways. We are also committed to working with and supporting older members of our parish.
