Okehampton Churches

If you love churches, especially old churches … you are going to be spoilt for choice when you’re visiting Okehampton. All of these lovely churches are in easy reach of the town centre.

Churches are very often the oldest building in a village or town, each stone marks the location where history happened and tells of a significant event in our town’s story. These Okehampton churches are steeped in history, and we hope that their architecture will inspire you.

All Saints Church

Rectory Road Okehampton Devon EX20 1LW
01837 659297

A Church has stood on this hill since Saxon times when the little hilltop village of Ocmundtune was closely grouped around its (probably wooden) Church and surrounded on all sides by dense forests. With the building of Okehampton Castle soon after 1066, present day Okehampton began to develop in the river valley and the little Saxon village was progressively abandoned.

Fairplace Church

Fairplace Terrace Okehampton EX20 1DT
01837 52302

Fairplace Church is in the centre of Okehampton opposite the Post Office. It is a United Church representing both the Methodist and the United Reformed Churches. As a member of Christians Together in Okehampton the Church shares with Christians of many denominations in the town. The Church building was opened as the new Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in 1904 and was refurbished the late 1990’s reopening in 1999. During the refurbishment the pews were taken out to be replaced by chairs, a new entrance porch was added and the schoolroom and the Gratton hall were refreshed. A new venture, a coffee bar called the Terry Bennett Centre was created at the same time.

Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses

East Street Okehampton EX20 1AS

We come from hundreds of ethnic and language backgrounds, yet we are united by common goals. Above all, we want to honor Jehovah, the God of the Bible and the Creator of all things. We do our best to imitate Jesus Christ and are proud to be called Christians. Each of us regularly spends time helping people learn about the Bible and God’s Kingdom. Because we witness, or talk, about Jehovah God and his Kingdom, we are known as Jehovah’s Witnesses.
