Fairplace Church is in the centre of Okehampton opposite the Post Office. It is a United Church representing both the Methodist and the United Reformed Churches. As a member of Christians Together in Okehampton the Church shares with Christians of many denominations in the town. The Church building was opened as the new Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in 1904 and was refurbished the late 1990's reopening in 1999. During the refurbishment the pews were taken out to be replaced by chairs, a new entrance porch was added and the schoolroom and the Gratton hall were refreshed. A new venture, a coffee bar called the Terry Bennett Centre was created at the same time.
