Broadwoodkelly is part of the Winkleigh Mission Community with Ashreigney, Brushford and Winkleigh.
During the current coronavirus lockdown our church building is closed. Our churchyard remains open and visitors are welcome.

In order to continue to be a Christian presence in this village and to maintain our building as a peaceful place of prayer, we rely on generous financial support.
Our running costs are £440 each month and our income has been reduced by the current crisis and our funds are running out.

The Church is a Grade I Listed Building. It dates mostly from the fifteenth century (though some parts of the building are some 200 years older). Consisting of nave and south aisle, it boasts a charming 1523 original stained glass window in the north wall and a fairly massive sixteenth-century octagonal font. The whole building was extensively restored in 1869. The church organ, built by Telford & Telford of Dublin, dates from 1849 and was originally built as a house organ for Lord Thynne at Haynes Park in Bedfordshire. It is now highly regarded as an organ of its period still in its original condition.
