Cheriton Fitzpaine is a small village in the heart of rural Mid Devon, 12 miles north of Exeter and 6 miles from Crediton, and celebrated 150 years of witness in the village in 2012. The congregation is friendly and welcomes visitors. The premises are well maintained, wheelchair accessible, have a car park at the side of the building and good kitchen facilities used by the village Welcome Club twice a month. (See photo of a Christmas meal.)

There are good ecumenical links and Remembrance Sunday is celebrated at St Matthews’ where the village War Memorial is situated. A Fellowship Group meets on Thursday mornings which is open to all. Breakfast Club is held the first Saturday of the month and is truly a community occasion. Photo shows the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Breakfast Club, celebrated with a special cake.

The Community Shop Group are using our premises for distributing newspapers daily, and we look forward to the completion and opening of the ‘shed shop’ on church premises as a facility for the whole village.

Update Jan 2018: we are delighted to see the new shed-shop being constructed to the rear of our drive. It is progressing quickly & it is generally hoped that it will be ready & open for trading by Easter time. The committee which is organising it has worked tirelessly over the past year, so to see the fruition of all their labours is wonderful. As a chapel we are hoping the increased use of our premises will encourage people to try visiting us, too. We will certainly make them very welcome.
