Welcome to our website for Saint Werburgh’s Church, Wembury. Our church falls within the Diocese of Exeter.
Our picturesque Church is sited above Wembury Beach, with views over the Yealm Estuary and Mewstone. Surrounded by National Trust land, it serves the parish of Wembury including the communities of Down Thomas and Heybrook Bay.
St Werburgh’s is a warm and friendly Christian family, providing Christian ministry, witness to the Gospel, and a variety of styles of worship, not allied to any particular tradition of churchmanship.
People who wish to enquire about Christian faith, or develop their commitment to it, whether formally through Baptism or Confirmation, or less formally through discussion, can contact a member of the parish team - email addresses on our contact page.
For information about Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals please go to our dedicated pages.
Our site gives you basic information about the church and our Christian life; for more detailed information please get in touch or, better still, come and see us.
Thank you for checking out our website. I do hope you may have opportunity to check us out on a Sunday – though church isn’t just about Sundays or the building. We do, however, keep the church building open all day, every day, so people can just wander in to pray, to enjoy the peace, to have a good look round, or simply to sit and rest their feet after walking along the coastal footpath.
I have been vicar since November 2014. My background is Royal Navy followed by several years in city centre church ministry. Alongside my role at St Werburgh’s I am an Officiating Chaplain with Devonport Naval Chaplaincy Team and chaplain to The D118 Association (Falkland Veterans).
Wembury is a wonderful place to explore coast and countryside. It is also a wonderful place to explore your faith – do please do feel free to contact me if there are things about the Christian faith you would like ask or talk about.
