Welcome to the website for St. Aubyn´s Church in Plymouth

 

You will find information here relating to the church building, people, worship services, related activities, as well as a link to Stoke Damerel, our sister parish.

St Aubyn’s is a rare example in Plymouth of a Georgian church with an originally rectangular shape, plain glass windows and important galleries. Its situation in a major regeneration area has offered the possibility of serious development work.

The church building has been undergone a transformation which will ensure its future for the next generations. Funded by Devonport Regeneration Community Partnership, St Aubyn's has been converted into Devonport Library on the ground floor, with a new worship and performance area situated on a new mezzanine in the chancel and repaired balconies. This is a very exciting development which will restore the building as well as putting the church into the heart of the community.

See below for a link to some pictures.

St. Aubyn's Church

The Church was re-opened early in 2011 with a formal ceremony to mark the importance of this development for the local community. Although we are still in the process of re-equipping the church space, worship has started again in the building. Please follow the link for Services to find out times.

As a Library, St Aubyn's is open to the public every day except Sundays and Thursdays, including Saturdays until 4pm.

A central biblical image for us is contained in St Matthew’s story of the sheep and goats:

The righteous will reply, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and fed you, or thirsty and gave you drink, a stranger and took you home, or naked and clothed you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and come and visit you?” And the king will answer, “Truly, I tell you: anything you did for one of my brothers [and sisters] here, however insignificant, you did for me.” (Matt. 25 37-40)

Do come and visit us either in person or virtually!
