Corona Virus Lockdown 3.0

Unfortunately due to the current situation and lockdown 3.0, services at Clyst Hydon, Clyst St. Lawrence and Talaton have been cancelled until further notice. These churches are small and difficult to socially distance. Services at Whimple are continuing but this is under constant review. If you wish to attend a service at Whimple please remember to pre-book your spaces through Marc or one of the churchwardens.
