Copplestone Methodist Church
Copplestone Methodist Church is in the centre of the mid‒Devon village of Copplestone and at the heart of the community. We welcome families, youth and adults of all ages. We want you to feel at home here. Church doesn’t have to be boring. The message about Jesus is good news and as relevant today as it’s ever been. We want people to discover just how amazing Jesus is and what a difference he makes to life. Our services are relaxed and informal, the music is up-to-date, the teaching is relevant to our everyday lives and Jesus is always the focus! So why not come along?
- 10:45am Sunday (tea and coffee served from 10:15am)

Our main service on Sunday mornings invites children and young people to join the adults for the first part of the service and then have their own Youth Church activities: Kidzone for the 4 ‒ 10s and then for those aged 11 ‒ 16 we have The Grid. There’s also a crèche for 3 year olds and under. Our evening service is is mainly a more traditional style service, but we also hold film evenings, youth services, one off events and much more during this time, to where all ages are welcomed.

A letter from Mark Williams
As you know, church buildings up and down the country, inclusing ours here in Copplestone, have been closed in recent weeks in light of the ongoing response to COVID-19. We've been unable to meet together in person on Sundays for our usual services and all kinds of midweek groups haven't been able to meet in or use the building.
