St Luke's Church
St Luke’s Church is a warm and welcoming church, the Church of England parish church of Buckfastleigh.
The Church serves the town, and the parish also includes Buckfast, Scorriton, and the surrounding area.
Our vision: to be a seven-day-a-week church which brings the love of Jesus to the community around us and which helps all grow in the Christian faith
We hope you will find here all the information you need and we hope we can look forward to meeting you.
Our building is modern, our worshipping community is diverse, and we welcome all people, whatever their background or personal circumstances, and whether already committed in Christian faith, or perhaps seeking God, or seeking answers to life’s questions, and also those needing a place of belonging, love and support.
We are within Exeter Diocese and are part of the Dart and Avon Mission Community, which, as well as St Luke’s, includes the churches of Dean Prior, Littlehempston, Staverton, Landscove, South Brent and Rattery. We also have links with Buckfastleigh Methodist Church.
For details of our Team Rector (formerly Vicar) Tom Benson and Curate Laura McAdam, please see the contact page.
There are 2 car parks close to the church (free in the evenings, but with a small charge on Sundays).
There is a very small amount of parking, (including a space for disabled parking), immediately in front of the church, but it is generally helpful if you can use the car parks rather than parking on the site.
If you have a concern about the safety of someone or the actions of someone working with children or vulnerable adults, please speak to our Parish Safeguarding Representative, Karola Hassall, on 07807 661369
