All Saints Church is a listed medieval building, extended with a north aisle and clerestory in 1824/25, and best known for the 200-year-old yew tree growing from the top of the tower.
We normally hold mid-morning Holy Communion (CW) services on the first and third Sundays of each month, and said Holy Communion (BCP) at 8am on the fourth Sunday. Joint services on the second Sunday are here in evening in the summer, and in the Methodist Church in the afternoon in the winter. We also say Morning Prayer (BCP) at 10am on Tuesdays.
Culmstock School comes to church for Christmas and harvest services, and church members present 'Open the Book' bible stories monthly at school assemblies. Wellington School chapel choir come annually to sing Evensong. Their founder is buried in the outside North East corner of the East Wall and his two successors as Head came from the Corner family who have a window immediately on the left of the main entrance. The Blackdown Early Music Project gives occasional public recitals, both helped by the excellent acoustics.
A charity cafe on the first Monday morning each month combines fund-raising with a social meeting place. There is garden fete on a Saturday afternoon in June, the church and tower are open with refreshments for Devon Historic Churches Day in September, and lunch in the village hall follows the harvest service in October.
