Welcome to Bere Alston United Church

  •   BAUC front 
    We seek to be the people God created us to be
    and to do all that He is calling us to do

    Welcome to our church in south west Devon.

    We are a lively joint Methodist and United Reformed Church with a membership of around fifty. We have a wide age range, from new-born to ninety years old and over (we don't like to pry too much into a lady's age!), and come from a variety of backgrounds, so our weekday activities reflect that.

    We have support from Ministers from the URC (although this is currently a vacancy) and from Tavistock Methodist Circuit. 

    Our building (pictured to the right of the page) does not have the normal appearance of a church, more resembling a house and being in a row of houses in the main Fore Street of the village, but it has been in existence for 200 years.

    Bere Alston is near Tavistock, which is on the edge of Dartmoor, and is in the parish of Bere Ferrers. The two villages of Bere Ferrers and Bere Alston are on a peninsula created by the rivers Tamar and Tavy in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

    For more web pages about Devon and our surrounding area see the Other Sites of Interest page.

    We hope you will enjoy your tour around our site and we would love to welcome you here in person one day soon.
