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.
We have a whole 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!

You will find the latest copy (and how to get back copies) of the 'Hartbeat'  magazine on the News page via the menu at the top of this page.   The latest copy is number 4-4.


Here is the  clickable link to the advice from the Diocese  and the Church of England to minimise the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) in the forthcoming months:


Unfortunately, following current firm 'advice' from the authorities, we have been obliged to shut and lock all the churches in the Community and some other places such as the Church Rooms in Hartland.   Be assured that the doors to all of these will be opened as soon as we are allowed.  You can see the 'Services during virus restrictions' item in the menu at the head of this page (and all the others) which gives details of the arrangements in the meantime.  You will see there in particular a poster for the PRAYERLINE to help you spiritually with these difficult times.

A detailed letter about all this from the Rector, Jane Skinner, is shown in full on the News page together with prayers for Mothering Sunday, the National Day of Prayer, which was 22nd March.

Andrew Macwilliam has provided a prayerful meditation for Palm Sunday, 5th April.






"... 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: 

In our Mission Community, with its nine parishes, there are Safeguarding Officers responsible for each parish.  These can be contacted as shown in the list below.   Alternatively please contact the Team Rector or the Team Vicar both of whose contact details can be found via the Contacts page clicked from the menu at the top of the page.
