Welcome to the Holsworthy Benefice Website.

  •    We are five Church of England parishes in and around Holsworthy

    Thank you for looking at this website, we hope you find it helpful.  

    It is with great joy that we have been given the green light to open churches and to have public worship.  

    St Peter and St Paul parish church, Holsworthy is open for personal prayer everyday.  In time we hope to open up Pyworthy and Pancrasweek during the day and give access to Bridgerule and Hollacombe as people request.

    Services will begin again from 12th July, starting with Holsworthy on Sundays at 11am.

    All are welcome at our churches and on Zoom for worship.  If you are well and are visiting a church building please follow the advise for your own safety and the safety of others. 

    If you are struggling with the pandemic or for any other reason, or would like more information please do be in touch.

    Yours in Christ 
    Mother Elizabeth
