Church House Management Committee

The Church House Management Committee was formed in January 2003 and has 10 members. The Committee was set up after a number of public meetings which were held in the Parish to determine the future of Church House. The building has been used by the community for over 500 years and has now been restored to a high modern standard, for public use on a wider basis.

The Managing Trustees of Church House are the incumbent and Churchwardens of South Tawton , and the Custodial Trustees are the Exeter Diocesan Board of Finance Ltd. The Management Committee has been appointed to manage the building, to safeguard the future of Church House by vigorous promotion of the renovated building.

Friends of Church House

The Friends of Church House support the Committee by gift aided donations, voluntary work and fund raising.
