Welcome to Temple Methodist Church in Budleigh Salterton, Devon. Methodist worship has been held on this site for over two hundred years - you can read all about our heritage by clicking this "Our History" link.
Temple Methodist Church has a thriving congregation with over 100 members and our buildings are used by a large variety of groups throughout the week. One feature of our Worship that we are very proud of is our Youth Outreach. On a Sunday morning, it is not unusual to see 15 to 25 young people in our congregation, ranging from toddlers to mature teenagers. Quite an unusual sight in Churches these days.
We are a part of the Exeter Coast and Country Methodist Circuit which consists of 28 Churches in an area of just over 50 miles east to west and 25 miles north to south. Our extremities are Axminster in the east to Whiddon Down on the edge of Dartmoor in the west, and Cheriton Fitzpaine in the north to us at Temple in the south, and include 5 churches in the City of Exeter.
Temple is a part of the Budleigh Churches Partnership and we are a host venue for various festivals, including the renowned Budleigh Salterton Music Festival held annually in July and the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival held in September. We also provide a venue for a variety of concert-type events throughout the year.
Church services are held at 10.30am and 6.30pm every Sunday, with the Sacrament of Holy Communion held on the first Sunday morning and third Sunday evening each month.
The church welcomes visitors - our doors are open every day between 10am and 5pm. You will find a warm welcome here whether you have been worshiping with us for many years or you are new to the area.
