Welcome to the website for the Holyford Mission Community serving the parishes of Branscombe, Colyton with Colyford, Musbury, Northleigh and Southleigh in East Devon.

We are a community of six churches each with its own weekly pattern of services and activities. Our shared life is very important to us and we meet regularly to worship, socialise and pray together.  We hope that we are an inclusive and welcoming community which seeks to serve the needs of everyone.

Within these pages you will find information about our services, social events, churches and opportunities to meet, learn, pray and ask questions.  There are many different groups and activities to be involved with. We hope that you can find what you are looking for.  If not, please contact one of the ministry team or churchwardens, or our Mission Community Administrator.

Do come and find out more about us – you will be most welcome.

So come,
You who have much faith, and you who have little.
You who have come often, and you who have stayed away.
You who have tried to follow, you who have failed.
You whose love flickers faint, you whose love burns strong.
Come not because I invite you, come because Jesus invites you,
Bids you welcome, calls your name.
