Forthcoming events

Now that Covid restrictions have eased, we are starting to hold church events again, including the following:

  • On 26th September, we will be holding our Harvest Service followed by a bring-and-share lunch. All welcome.
  • 26th September will also be our annual Gift Day. It has been very challenging to raise funds over the past eighteen months and we would welcome donations towards the maintenance of the church.
  • On 21st October, a Knit-In will be held with funds raised to go to the church. Sponsorship details to follow.

Devon Historic Churches Open Day

St Paul’s will be open from 10am until approximately 3pm on Saturday 11th September 2021 to welcome anyone who would like to visit our church as part of the Devon Historic Churches Open Day. This is a good cause with donations being shared equally between the Devon Historic Churches Trust and a church of the donor's choice. Funds go towards the upkeep of churches across the county.

A delayed return to normality

Note: We will be updating this article shortly with our plans for returning services to as close to normal as possible by September! 20th July 2021

The news that the lockdown will not be lifted before 19th July means that we continue to hold services in the same way as we have since they resumed in church on 4th April 2021. They are held at 10:30am and are also streamed on Zoom for the benefit of anyone who finds it more convenient to take part in worship remotely and the link for this is available above. We are now (since Pentecost) in the period in the liturgical calendar known as Ordinary Time and services for the next few months will use the "normal" Holy Communion liturgy. A copy is available above to be downloaded for use with online services.

We are looking forward to the time, hopefully now just a few weeks away, when will be be able to take part in services without wearing face masks and will be able to sing!

Services are also accessible on Revd Shaun's Mission Prayer Programme Facebook page. The link to this is available in the St Paul's Coronavirus Procedures document below.

Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM)

All will be welcome to join us as we hold our APCM on 10th May at 7pm by Zoom. The link for this will be available beforehand on this page.

The routine business of the meeting will involve the presentation of the Annual Report on the operation of the church during the difficult pandemic-dominated year 2020 as well as the accounts for the same period. Elections will include two Churchwardens, two members to the Parochial Church Council (PCC) as well as sidespersons. Anyone who is registered on the church Electoral Roll may vote in these elections.

Officers who will be responsible for running various aspects of the church will be appointed.

We hope, also, to be able to discuss how St Paul's can best serve its parish in the years ahead.

The Zoom link, agenda and the Annual Report and Financial Statement for 2020 are available here:

2nd May 2021 - 16th May 2021

Christian Aid Week

St Paul’s, in common with other churches, will be supporting Christian Aid Week, 10th - 16th May 2021.

Christian Aid aims to reduce poverty wherever it is encountered around the world. This year, it will be focusing its resources on regions where there is a lack of clean water, brought about by climate change.

We will not be making door-to-door collections, but we would welcome any donations to this cause. If you would like a donation envelope, please let us know via the Contact Us page.
