St. Raphael's Chapel situated in the beautiful hamlet of Huccaby on Dartmoor, is a place of peace and tranquility. Built in 1868 as a combined chapel and schoolroom, it has the distinction of being the only Anglican chapel in the country to be dedicated to the Archangel St. Raphael. His name means 'God's Healing' or 'God has healed' and he was one of the archangels who stood before the throne. He is also known as the patron saint of travellers.
Services of Holy Communion are held every 3rd Sunday at 9am.
The next service will take place at 9am on 18th September 2016. Everyone is welcome.
Our Harvest Festival will be held at 3pm on 2nd October. This will be followed by a cream tea and we are planning to have a candlelit Carol Service on Friday 23rd December at 6pm. As usual home-made mince pies and mulled wine will be served after the service.
The Chapel is also available for weddings - please check with the Churchwarden or Church of England website for eligibility criteria; baptisms and funerals. Details are on our Links Page.
