St David’s Church Ashprington

St David’s Church Ashprington is one of nine churches in the Totnes mission community.  The church in Ashprington stands on rising ground above the centre of the village it serves.  Most of its current structure dates from the Middle Ages with later additions in Victorian times.

Whatever your denomination or faith you are more than welcome to visit St David’s church, to pray, to meditate, to simply find a quiet time apart or to join us in one of our services.  The church is open most days from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.

Our church services in Ashprington are conducted every Sunday at 11.15 am except for the first Sunday in the month when we join the congregation at St Peter’s Church, Cornworthy for a 9.15 am service. On the fourth Sunday in the month, the service is Village Worship, a more informal and relaxed service.  No communion.

The Institution by Bishop Robert of Rev’d James Derek Barlow as Team Rector of Totnes Team Ministry will be on Wednesday July 8th at 7pm.

Bishop Robert has asked for the Zoom service itself to include only those taking part.  However, the service will be live streamed on YouTube to enable as many people in the Totnes Team Ministry and the Bracknell Team Ministry to be present.
The following YouTube link will take you to the live streamed service.

Open after Covid19


Covid-19 – GOOD NEWS! St David’s Church Ashprington is now open for Private Prayer and Reflection all week from 10:00 a.m until 6:00 p.m.  Safe practices have now been established and following a change of regulations by the Government and guidance by the Bishop of Exeter our doors are now open to welcome you for quiet meditation within an area of the Church. Please follow the hygiene and safety instructions and procedures within the South Porch and Church.

Please note that as yet there will be no Sunday services in St David’s.

The 11.15am Facebook live Sunday service which has been running over these last few weeks has now been replaced by a 10.00am Team Zoom Service every Sunday. The Zoom service has been successfully piloted by the St John`s congregation and it has the advantage of enabling others to lead parts of the service, incorporate hymns and music (via Diana`s mastery of spotify) as well as people being able to be seen on screen or heard via telephone link.  For further details please see The Totnes Mission Community Newsletter below.
