Bideford Catholic Churches

Catholic Churches of Bideford and Torrington


Welcome to the Website for Bideford Catholic Churches. The parish has Churches in both Bideford and Torrington and covers a wide geographical area, from Instow to the North, Petrockstowe to the South and Welcombe to the West.

In England the Corona Virus 'Lock-Down' was lifted on December 2nd. North Devon is currently in Tier 2 and therefore we are able to resume Holy Mass at our Churches.

See our Mass Times page, for current information regarding public services, starting Friday 4th December at Bideford.

Mass Times over the Xmas period can be seen here.

Due to the need to maintain 'Social Distancing' and to avoid having to turn Parishioners away, please note that spaces will need to be pre-booked for Christmas Eve & Christmas day Masses. See here for how to book.

NHS Track & Trace APP: QR Codes are now on display in the entrance to our Churches if you are using the NHS Track & Trace App. Alternatively, Track & Trace forms should be completed upon entry. To maintain social distancing. Stewards will be on hand in our Churches to direct people, masks must be worn also sanitising of hands will be required upon entering. If you arrive at the Church and it is already at capacity, then unfortunately you may not be allowed in.

Our Churches consist of The Church of The Sacred Heart in Bideford and
