Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Dunkeswell Mission Community.

We hope that you will find the website interesting and informative and that any of the questions that you may have are answered here. If not, please contact us via the contact page and we will try to help.

The six parishes comprising the Dunkeswell Mission Community are Dunkeswell with Dunkeswell Abbey, Broadhembury, Luppitt, Sheldon, Upottery and Plymtree. Each have their own Church and each  parish is based on one or more villages.

Whilst the parishes of Dunkeswell and Sheldon have co-operated over many years, the Mission Community came into being in 2006, being commended and blessed by Bishop Bob Evens in May 2010, with Broadhembury joining the Mission Community in 2011. Plymtree has recently agreed to join us and whilst we are now all working together, the legal formalities will follow. Plymtree have co-operated with Broadhembury in the past and so know us well already.

The six parishes share one full time incumbent, with a House for Duty priest currently being recruited.
