Messy Church

The last session of the popular Messy Church was in Church House, Abbotskerswell on Thursday 23 August starting at 10am and finishing about 12:30pm.

A fun based activity morning for children of all ages with a Christian message, followed by lunch. Donations towards the cost of lunch would be most welcome.

It would be appreciated if young children are accompanied by an adult.

An Update from Tim Collins

Mary and Tim would like to thank all those involved in our wonderful send off on Sunday 24th June.  Such generosity of love – and food.


It would be lovely to see as many as you are able to attend Tim’s ordination at Exeter Cathedral on 15th September.

(The service begins at 3:30 so arrival before 3:00pm is probably wise.)
