SUSPENSION OF SERVICES UNTIL AFTER 15TH FEBRUARY

The Rector and the Parochial Church Councils of Burlescombe, Halberton, Hockworthy, Holcombe Rogus, Sampford Peverell and Uplowman, acting jointly, authorise dispensing with the reading of Morning and Evening Prayer, as required by Canon B11, and the celebration of the Holy Communion, as required by Canon B14, until after the government review of lockdown on the 15th February 2021.


The reason for the dispensation is that in the light of the Government’s guidance on preventing the spread of Coronavirus, there is no church in the benefice which can be used safely for public worship on those occasions.

DETAILS OF ONLINE SUNDAY SERVICES WILL BE POSTED WHEN KNOWN.

WE HOPE TO RESUME SERVICES AFTER 15TH FEBRUARY IF IT IS SAFE TO DO SO.

Growing in Prayer Prayer is a life-giving activity that opens up deep places within us to God’s transforming grace. Growing in prayer is essential if we are to become the people and the Church God calls us to be.Making new disciplesAs the Christian story is less and less known, we must find new ways of telling the story, of explaining the faith and giving a reason for the hope that is in us. With Jesus Christ as our companion and guide we can travel through life differently.Serving the people of Devon with joyAs followers of Jesus Christ, we want to make a difference in the world and make God’s love and justice known. In our church life we seek to be local, participatory and outward looking.
