St Clement's Church

Welcome to the mother church of Dartmouth, Saint Clement's Townstal where you will find a friendly group of people who will encourage you to come among us to worship God and join in the many and varied activities which take place here.

St Clement's stands some 350ft above the main town, the present fabric dates partly from the 13th Century with some Norman traces and the building is Grade 1 listed. Of particular interest are the High Altar which dates from James I and the font of Purbeck stone dating from the 13th or possibly early 14th century.

The early part of the 21st century was a time when important changes took place in St Clement's. The purpose of this 're-ordering' was not only to conserve this historic building but also to enable it to be a more useful and welcoming presence in the lives of the people of our time. Removing the Victorian pews has created a bright open space for worship, and the addition of modern facilities encourages other community events to be held here.


The Parish Sung Eucharist takes place here on the first and third Sunday of the month with the first Sunday being particularly family friendly. On the first Sunday our 'Wake up on Sunday' is an informal, relaxed family get-together on the first Sunday of the month where children can enjoy interacting with Bible stories and parents can socialise. There is a children's corner with toys and games. On Thursdays there is a said Holy Communion Service at 9.30am, followed by coffee for those who want to stay for a chat; light lunches are served throughout the winter months from 12 until 1.30pm.
Morning Prayer is said on Monday and Tuesday at 8.30am and on Thursday at 8.45am. The benefice Cell of Our Lady of Walsingham meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm
for worship and prayer with a Eucharist and 'bring and share' supper each quarter..
