We visit our church, St Mary’s, on a regular basis. We hold Easter and Harvest Services there where the children sing hymns and songs and perform poetry or short plays. We also hold our Leaver’s Service there in the summer when the church is filled with family and friends to celebrate our latest year 6 children to be leaving. The children also attend the Village Carol Service at Christmas and usually perform a song for the congregation.
The local Anglican Churches have now become known as the Start Bay Benefice. The Benefice covers the following Parishes: Beesands, Buckland-tout-Saints, Charleton, Chivelstone, East Portlemouth, Sherford, Slapton, South Pool and Stokenham.
Reverend Pam Kemp is our local vicar; she attends our church services and our school Christingle Service. Details of the Benefice website can be found at www.startbay.org.uk
