Bideford Catholic Churches

Catholic Churches of Bideford and Torrington


Welcome to the Website for Bideford Catholic Churches. Our 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.

Coronavirus restrictions:- Whilst there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.  Due to the vulnerable nature of some members of our congregation we would encourage the continued use of masks when moving about the church e.g. upon entrance and exit, when taking Communion etc.

Social distancing in a place of worship is now a personal choice. People are encouraged to respect other attendees and those working who may wish to adopt a more cautious approach.

NHS Track & Trace APP: QR Codes are on display in the entrance to our Churches for you to use the NHS Track & Trace App. Hand sanitiser is available upon entering, it is recommended we continue to use these services for the safety of all.

Our Churches consist of The Church of The Sacred Heart in Bideford and
The Church of The Holy Family in Torrington.
