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.

This
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:

St Clement’s is the Mother Church at the top of the town of Dartmouth, click here for more

St George’s, Dittisham
  is the parish church of the village of Dittisham, click here for more

St Petrox Church, at the mouth of the river Dart, is open daily all year round, click here for more
