Normal church services have been suspended.
In common with every other Church of England church, our normal church services are now suspended. This means that there will be no services in the Exe Valley this Sunday or until further notice. The churches will, however, remain open to visitors when possible as a place of private prayer.
Exe Valley Online/Phone Services and Downloads
Steph and the team are working hard to provide you with reflections, devotionals, prayers and even sermons during this time. You will find links to these in our News section, here - as well as on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.
It has been especially good to hear of people who live in other places, but who are able to worship with us. Everyone is very welcome.
Conference Call / Zoom Trinity Sunday Service - Sunday 7th June 2020
Thank you to all of you who joined us for worship on Sunday. I think the general feeling was that the call was much clearer. Phew! So, we continue using this number and PIN. Remember, you will NOT have to use the #. You will NOT be asked to announce yourself, although it would be helpful to just say your name and then wait for others to join. Please can you remind anyone you know about this. We really don’t want anyone to feel left out!
In addition, this Sunday we will also try to use Zoom simultaneously with the conference call! We tried last week and failed - along with hundreds of other churches in the UK! So we are going to try again this Sunday. Please remember to print your order of service if you are using Zoom. It is also really important that those who can, mute themselves on either the phone or Zoom.

Order of Service:
Bible Studies & Reflections
Each week we are making a set of reflections available for a reflective Bible Study and worship.
David Runcorn (who wrote the reflections we used in Holy Week) has written six more on the resurrection, and has kindly offered them to us. They are already on his own website here: www.davidruncorn.com/drwp/six-reflections-on-the-resurrection/
Zoom Bible Study
It has been great to study the Bible together on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm. We will be looking at 1, 2 and 3 John over the course of the next few weeks. The details are as follows:
