About Us

Chagford Gospel Church (CGC) is a small, evangelical church located in Chagford, Dartmoor National Park. 


We are a family of ordinary people from an array of backgrounds on a life changing journey with Jesus. We believe that Jesus Christ is the risen son of God, who died and rose again to bring the lost to an active faith in Him (Luke 15:11-32). We're all at different stages of our journey with the Lord, committed to discovering more about Him and following His call in our lives.


We relate to a number of local churches and some larger churches in the Exeter/Plymouth area where many of our visiting speakers originate. 


The CGC leadership team is made up of two elders who oversee our church's ministries and activities, and a number of deacons who are paramount to the smooth running of the church.


Danny Chipps

On January 11th 2020, our dear friend and elder, Danny Chipps, went Home to our Lord and Saviour. A true gentleman and shining example of a selfless Godly man. He touched so many lives in his dedication to share the Word and God's love. An immense loss to us all - heaven’s gain. 


Steve Andrews

Originally from Cheltenham, Steve delivers biblical insight into our faith through his teaching and pastoring – all with a true Cheltenham accent. He is married to Debbie and has three children. Steve works locally in the agricultural sector.


David Turnbull

Dave supports the other church leaders providing direction and teaching within CGC. He works within the IT sector and has a habit of tinkering with the church technology. Dave is married to Jane (who helps in the worship team) and has two daughters.
