The Church of England  plays a vital role in the life of the nation, proclaiming the Christian gospel in words and actions and providing services of Christian worship and praise.

Here in Exminster, we are within the Diocese of Exeter for the Church of England in Devon.

The present parish church of Saint Martin of Tours is a Grade I listed building and was built in the late 14th and 15th centuries in the Perpendicular style. It was heavily restored in 1841 and again in 1852. It has a large three-storied tower with a polygonal stair turret.

Inside, the Peamore (or Lady) Chapel has a plaster ceiling dated 1633, depicting the Twelve Apostles and the Four Evangelists, scenes of the Nativity, Christ carrying the cross and the Resurrection. There is also a notable monument to Otho Petre of Bowhay who died in 1607.

For over 700 years years people have gathered together under the roof of St Martin’s Church to worship God and celebrate births, marriages and the lives of people from this parish.

Time moves on but the 2000 year old message stays the same.

Come and join us to see how God’s message of love can transform your life.
