To know Jesus and make him known
Our services begin at 9.30am every Sunday. The first and third Sundays of the month are Holy Communion services with Kids’ Church at the same time, the second Sunday is an All Age service and the fourth is Sunday Worship.
On the second Sunday each month, we also offer a Service of Said Holy Communion at 8am from the Book of Common Prayer.
Find out more about our different types of services below.
The church building is open every day from around 9am until about teatime. Do come and visit - everyone is very welcome.
On the first and third Sundays each month, Kids’ Church means children start in church with their families and then go off to their group for age appropriate Bible teaching, a fun session with games, prayer and craft. Each group has two adult leaders, all DBS checked and having completed relevant Safeguarding courses.
Kids’ Church - 1st and 3rd Sundays monthly - 9.30am:
Climbers (0 - 4 year olds)
Discoverers (5 - 8 year olds)
Explorers (age 9 plus)
Contact Sara Chapman for more information. Email email@example.com, or view more details on our children’s page here.
An ‘All Age’ service happens every second Sunday of a month and is an interactive time for all. Activity bags for the children to help them to engage with the theme, song with actions and a great time to encourage each other in our faith.
Our Faculty Application for this project was approved by the Diocese of Exeter on 31st March 2023. We are currently giving notice that we are applying to the Consistory Court of the diocese for permission to carry out the works published on the door of the church and in the porch.

We have been working over the last few years towards restoring the interior of St George's Church to create a warm, flexible and vibrant meeting place, an “Amazing Space”
Our Grade 1 listed church building needs some Tender Loving Care. We are future-proofing this landmark building by installing a new heating system, a new electric system and restoring the interior. We are creating a vibrant space for all at the heart of the community.
We look forward to welcoming you and warmly invite you to come along.
Car parking and disabled access and facilities available. Hearing loop. Assistance dogs welcome.
Vehicle entrance to the car park is on Church Lane approximately 100 metres from the church.
The church is open daily from 9am to about 4pm.
We support our Mission Partners through prayer and fundraising and are linked with Missionaries in Nepal, the Phillippines and Africa through organisations including the Church Missionary Society and YWAM South Asia.

Remembering those from Modbury who gave their lives in two world wars.
In 1914 and again in 1939, Modbury men and women gave up their jobs and enlisted in the Services to serve their country.
39 made the ultimate sacrifice.
Modbury Remembers aims is to bring their names to life for future generations by researching their family background, where they lived, when they served; where they fell and are buried.
We have a collection point in St George's Church and one in the Co-op in the town. These are emptied weekly and donations are taken to the Foodbank by our volunteers.
The cost of living crisis means that more and more people are having to rely on Foodbank for help with food, school uniform, debt and fuel costs.
For more information about foodbank and how to get help if you need it, or how to make a donation online, click below.
Modbury is an ancient market town with a history stretching back to Saxon times. St George’s Parish Church is predominantly 700 years old, although parts of it pre-date the Doomsday Book of the year 1086. It sits atop the town in a commanding position attracting visitors from near and far, benefiting from its location in the heart of one of England’s top tourist destinations. Town and Church share a fascinating and varied heritage involving Benedictine Priories, Civil War Battles, powerful families, famous names including the globally recognised Stetson family, celebrities of the Industrial Revolution, rumours of hidden lost tunnels, legends and lately some notable environmental firsts as Europe’s first plastic bag free town.
