About usHockworthy is a tranquil rural village and the parish includes the hamlets of Staple Cross and Waterslade. It covers a large area but with a population of only 174. Hockworthy is a very vibrant, active and sociable community with a strong sense of its own identity, the local pub at Staple Cross being a hub for the village. The village hall, which was originally the school, has close connections with the church and hosts frequent musical, church and other events. The ChurchAll are warmly welcomed into the church which has a traditional but slightly quirky mix - we love traditional services and hymns but are more than happy to have a service in a cowshed before the Dog Show. The church is strongly supported by at least 15 families in the parish who are actively involved in various church-related activities.


Each of the churches within The Sampford Peverell Team Mission Community fully recognizes and accepts the House of Bishops’ Safeguarding Policy Statement “Promoting a Safer Church 2017” and commits to complying with the current Church of England and Diocesan safeguarding policies and practice guidance.
