Saint Peter and Saint Mary Magdalene is the town centre Parish Church in Barnstaple, where a warm and friendly welcome is extended to all. We aim to be an inclusive church for everyone in the area, irrespective of age, gender, marital status, sexuality, nationality, disability, or background. We believe that every person is a child of God, valued and loved, and that we all have gifts and talents to contribute and share. 

Our main Parish Mass is at 10:30am on Sundays. The service is 'modern catholic' in style: traditional, accessible, and friendly. We aim for an atmosphere of relaxed formality; no one stands on ceremony. So there's no need to dress up specially (unless you'd like to) - feel free to come as you are. 😊 Tea and coffee are served afterwards.

The weekly coffee morning, Tuesdays from 10am, is another good time to visit. Tourists and anyone new to the area are most welcome. 

If you'd like to join us as a new worshipper, or if you need any further help or information, please don't hesitate to get in touch, for instance by emailing
