Appledore, Northam, WestwardHo!
Churches in the Community

We are in a Mission Team of three Anglican Churches on the Estuary to the north of Bideford in Devon. Our aim is to provide places of worship where all can feel at home regardless of age, race or background. We provide a wide range of styles of service and activities.
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we believe that being Church is not just about looking after our members, we are Churches based at the heart of our local community, for our local community.

 Appledore is a village at the mouth of the River Torridge. Features include Appledore Shipbuilders, a lifeboat slipway and local Ice Cream brand, Hocking's. There are many galleries and Appledore is well-known for its Arts Festivals.

Northam  in Devon is north of Bideford and close to Appledore and Westward Ho!. It is believed to be the site of an Anglo-Saxon castle where Hubba the Dane attacked Devon and was repelled by Alfred the Great or by the Earl of Devon. Northam Burrows are a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the Royal Devon Golf Club is the oldest in England.

St Margaret’s Anglican Church has been here for at least seven centuries and an earlier church on this same place since Norman times. See Church History

 Westward Ho! is famous for for its unique name which comes from the title of Charles Kingsley's novel Westward Ho! (1855), which was set in nearby Bideford. Its beach is a wonderful place to surf and kite surf. Lifeguards patrol in the summer.
