To know Jesus and make him known
Sunday services at All Hallows are held every week, usually at 9:30am.
Our services vary each week, with a Family Holy Communion on the fourth Sunday and on alternate second Sundays of each month; Family services led by Lay Readers take place on the first and alternate second Sundays; and on the third Sunday, we have a Family Service which is organised and led by members of our congregation.
You are warmly invited to come to our Church, especially on Sundays but also for private prayer, meditation or as an interested tourist. The Church is open for visitors in daylight hours every day of the year.
Please come along, we look forward to welcoming you.
The church does not have its own car park, but parking is available on the roadside or in the pub car park outside opening hours.
We have a hearing loop in church, assistance dogs are welcome and disabled access is available.
The Church Building of All Hallows, which means ‘all saints’, stands as a spiritual and architectural treasure in the village. From the front porch it gives views down to the sea at Ayrmer Cove, and even out to the Eddystone Lighthouse.
The origins of the site as a place of worship go back to Saxon times before the Norman Conquest, and the Yew Tree in the graveyard may date from this period. The present building was built around 1240 and the tower was added in the 14th century. It has changed little externally from that time, although the interior was extensively altered, with small pews installed by a Victorian Rector. Church services have been taking place in the church for nearly 800 years.
The church in Ringmore is maintained by the Parochial Church Council and there is a Friends association helping to maintain and care for the church building and its furnishings.
The Church has three rare and unusual features that make it a ‘must see’ attraction:-
The very rare medieval wall mural on the Chancel Arch. Please use the visitors book to give us your views of what this may represent. We already have six good suggestions and look for more.
The rose window at the back of the Church.
The sundial over the main door is rare and historic.
In Spring through to Autumn you will find a Visitors Quiz on the font in the Church, and this provides fun for adults and children on those rainy days when the beach is not enough. There are also information sheets giving much more detail on the history and architectural details.
A Prayer Chain operates for anyone, including the wider community, who feels the need for prayer and is instigated as required.
Visits by parishioners are organised for those in hospital or recuperating at home.
There are no other faith or denomination Worship Centres or Churches in the village, so we welcome those of all faiths or none.
