We belong to the Church of England and are part of the Diocese of Exeter. There are currently fourteen active churches, including a 'Chapel of Ease' within the Okehampton and Northmoor Churches Team Ministry. There is also 'St Mary's' of Ashbury which does not have services on a regular basis.

We are proud to be part of the Christian Church around the world and to affirm our unity with other Churches in the town. We understand the purpose of the Church to be:

NURTURING
Enabling Christians to grow in their understanding of God and of their faith

Men's Breakfast - 15th June

Technically the 15th is the third Saturday but as the second one is so near the beginning of the month I thought it was rather close to the last outing.

You missed a nice home-made perfectly burned sausage on our BBQ and unfortunately I forgot to take any pictures in the excitement of the moment, and wanting to get to eat it.

 

For June I think we are ready to head for the hills – so meet up at 8am at Cullever steps on the Camp Road just before the stream where there is some parking at the top of the track on the left.

Then we will go to the golf club for breakfast.

I expect a few people will be off on holiday so if you are around do see if you can introduce someone else to our gathering as I’m sure there will be space to spare.

The Sanctuary

 THE SANCTUARY

THE SANCTUARY UPDATE

On Wednesday 27th June 2018 the contoured benches were put into place around the tree stump and prayer completing the Sanctuary Project at All Saints Church coinciding with the All Saints Flower Festival the following weekend.

It is encouraging that the Sanctuary has received a lot of positive feedback despite the Sanctuary looking new and unnatural and the grass brown and trampled. When the grass has regrown to its previous verdant self, the bases have lost their white glare and the benches have toned down the Sanctuary will blend in more with the natural setting of the churchyard and surrounding area.

Now the Sanctuary is open to all for prayer, contemplation and remembrance. Also due to its quiet and natural setting people can sit and connect with the natural world benefitting their health and wellbeing.

For more information about the Sanctuary contact David Back on 07713459189 or email davidback59@btinternet.com.

All Saints Living Churchyards Project is part of the Exeter Diocese Devon Living Churchyards Project.

What is Pilgrim?

“The Pilgrim course is a journey to the heart of God and to a living, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.” The Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

Pilgrim is a major new teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England. It aims to help every local church create a place where people can explore the Christian faith together and see how it can be lived out each day.


For more information http://exeter.anglican.org/christian-faith/explaining-faith/pilgrim-course/ and http://www.pilgrimcourse.org/the-course

We are intending to have at least one of the pilgrim courses running somewhere within the Mission Community at all times and would also be very willing to facilitate a new group at any time too. Anyone who is interested can contact Revd Steve Cook or Revd Adrian Brook to find out more about pilgrim and what's going on at any particular time.
