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.

8/11/2020 Remembrance Sunday

Villagers met at the War Memorial  at 10:50am for a short Act of Remembrance lead by Liz Waterson.  No service followed due to Covid lockdown but people were invited to follow a route of remembrance from the Lych Gate through the church with the “there but not there” transparent figures of Ashprington-fallen in their places with their names and a brief description.  At intervals on this route of remembrance there was a prayer or meditation to read. The wooden crosses from the war memorial lined the path to the church.
