A Christian presence at the heart of our communities        

February 2021
St Petrox and St Saviour's churches are open for private prayer daily from approximately 10am to 5pm.  St George's in Dittisham is open Monday to Thursday from 10am to 3pm (closed on Friday and Saturday).  Please observe the social distancing and hygiene measures we have put in place to keep you and others safe at this time.  Face coverings must be worn inside our buildings.

We are continuing to offer limited public worship during this difficult time.  However in order to reduce risk there will be one service on Sunday in Dartmouth (at St Clement's Church) and one in Dittisham.  There will be one benefice midweek service in Dartmouth. 
We also hope to continue to provide online reflections each week.  Resources for worship at home are available here and in St Saviour's Church.

LENT COURSE 2021 - The Creeds
Our 2021 Lent Course will be held by Zoom on Tuesdays during Lent at 12.15pm.  We shall continue our discussion of The Creeds which was interrupted by the lockdown last year.  Please email the office for details.

A very warm welcome to the United Benefice of Dartmouth and Dittisham in the beautiful South Hams area of Devon. Our mission is to be a growing, joy-filled, Christian presence at the heart of our communities. We welcome both locals and visitors of all ages to our services.

link  will take you to a short video about the Benefice.

Through our four church buildings, St Clement's, St George's, St Saviour's and St Petrox, we endeavour to walk the journey of faith together, fed and nurtured by God's word and sacraments.  Worship is our first duty, and we try, and hopefully make the worship here, both reverent and accessible.

The outward sign of the Church here is the four Grade One listed buildings that we are fortunate to have for our worship:
