St. Peters Church Services & News 2021

Dear People of Dalwood - St Peter’s Church is opening for Sunday Services.


We are now delighted to say that, as the Government lockdown guidelines are easing the Diocese is allowing us to re-start regular Sunday services.

We shall still follow certain restrictions, such as spacing and the wearing of face-masks.

Best Kept Churchyard competition.

Every Year the Council for the Preservation of Rural England ( CPRE) run a competition across Devon to find the best kept churchyard. We entered in 2019 for the first time and came Third winning a Highly Commended Award which is hanging in the church porch. We are entering again this year and would welcome your support. Besides keeping the churchyard neat and tidy we are asked to encourage various forms of wildlife and to encourage people to take a longer look at the churchyard. Judges will visit St Peter’s unannounced 2 or 3 times over the summer with the results being announced in the autumn

So, rather than just taking a pleasant stroll through St Peter’s, why not pick up one of the I-SPY sheets ( which can be found in the porch) or the more demanding Questionnaire about the graves and have a really good look around. There are I-SPY sheets on Birds, Plants and Fungi - with more being prepared. While the grave questionnaire asks questions like “What is the Name of the Spanish Nobleman buried in Dalwood” and “How many people died in 1970”. We will publish the answers to the questions in an autumn edition of the Parish paper
