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.

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

Germansweek Church Wins National Lottery Support

Germansweek church has received National Lottery support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Thanks to National Lottery players, essential conservation work can be carried out to the roof and tower. Parts of the church date back to Norman times and it has been a focal point for the local community for many hundreds of years.

Commenting on the award, Churchwarden Jon Walker said “We’re delighted that we’ve received this support thanks to National Lottery players. St. German’s church has played an important part in people’s lives over the centuries and it’s good to know that we can now help to keep it here for future generations.”

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.

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.
