Upton Pyne Parish Church

uptsfw

Welcome to the Parish Church of Our Lady, Upton Pyne, EX5 5JA

Upton Pyne is easy to find, just a mile or so off the A377 outside Exeter, the village sits on the north side of Pynes Hill.  The Church of Our Lady is reached from the main street through an open cobbled area known as The Causeway.

Bishop Grandisson consecrated the church in 1328.  Flakes of paint found on the statues on the tower during recent conservation work revealed that the figures were likely to have been carved in the Exeter cathedral workshops during the 1380's.  These sculptures, although now rather worn, contribute to the grade 1 status of the church.

More information about the history of the church (including interior photographs) is available as an Adobe pdf file. Please click here

 Thorverton Church Choir and Instrumental Group

 

tccv2

 

 

We have a church choir with 20 or so members, some of whom robe in the traditional way. We enjoy singing music together from many ages and of many styles. This includes canticles, psalms and responses at services such as Evensong and Mattins, anthems in four parts and hymns at regular Sunday morning communion and family style services, as well as worship songs, spirituals, rounds and music from Taizé.

We sing at a morning service usually twice a month and occasionally at weddings and funerals when invited. Membership is open to everyone – there are no auditions. The choir usually practises on two Thursday evenings a month at Thorverton Church. We are always happy to welcome new singers. Just before Christmas, some 15 – 20 ‘extras’ join us for our Service of Lessons and Carols.

Our church instrumental group plays at most family services and some special services too. Again, there are no auditions. There are junior-aged members, teenagers and adults. We usually practise just before each service. New members are always welcome – all types of instruments are included.

Poltimore Parish Church

Welcome to the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Poltimore EX4 OAT

The village of Poltimore is grouped around the church. Opposite the church entrance is a tree-lined drive to the Rectory, now a private house, which is a late Georgian structure that replaced an earlier cob and reed building. On the north side of the chancel stands the almshouse which until converted into two flats in 1982 contained four single rooms occupied by ladies of the village.
