Welcome to the Hartland Coast Mission Community website.   We are a team made up of individual parishes each with its own worshipping community, together seeking to serve the people who live, work and visit here. Each is a lively community with much going on, and as our web site develops we hope you will find all the details of what is currently on offer.  Choose "The Parishes" and "Links" from the menu on the top line of this page to see more detail of individual parishes and associated organisations.
We offer a variety of worship services within the team. We aim to provide a worship menu with something to suit everyone, with many parishes trying new forms of informal worship alongside other more traditional services. For further details please check the individual parish pages.  We have a ministry of welcome to all, if you come and find a welcome please tell your friends, if you come and don’t find a welcome please tell us!

  • The Fellowship of St Helen has been established on Lundy, based in St Helen's church. Bishop Jackie supports this project and offers helpful words about it on the Lundy page - click on the underlined words to go there.

  • Active future planning is underway to develop the chapel of St John's, in the main square of Hartland itself,  hopefully to receive grant-aid to provide a new focus as a national resource for artistic and musical endeavours.  Details of the plans are included here: https://www.hartlandcoastchurches.org/hartland-st-nectan-s

  • See the Links page for the latest Woolsery Parish Newsletter and Clovelly News.  



"... means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture in all our churches. In order to achieve this, we need to do a lot of hard work. We will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults. We will work to prevent abuse from occurring. We will seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks."

The above paragraph is quoted from the Parish Safeguarding Handbook which is available here:
