The Church of St Mary, Lifton
Lifton is the largest of the parishes in the Lifton Benefice and is located in West Devon on the Cornish border. The village itself is situated in a valley where two rivers meet and is surrounded by rolling Devon farmland.


Lifton has a Holy Communion service (Common Worship, sung to Marbeck) or Morning Prayer at 9.30 am. We have a small choir led by a professional musician who is our organist and her husband who composes pieces for the choir.

There is a regular mid-week service of either Morning Prayer or Communion followed by coffee and fellowship.

The Church Building

The church building, which is Grade 1 listed, mainly dates from the 15th Century with some much earlier walls to the Lady Chapel but with Victorian furnishings and a Norman font. We are fortunate in being able to leave the church open during daylight hours for visitors.
