Sunday Services – 25th April

Dear friends

This Sunday we have gathered worship available as follows:

10am St John’s, Tatworth.  Outdoors Holy Communion.  This is a relaxed Communion service being held on the grass outside St John’s.  We will be able to sing hymns together (as we are outside), and there will be an activity for children and all young at heart!.  Led by Reverend Philip.  The theme will be John 21 – Jesus sharing breakfast on the beach.  


10am St Mary’s, Thorncombe.  Parish Eucharist in Church, led by Reverend Judith.


6:30pm St Stephen’s, Winsham.  Service of Light.  A lay led reflective service to close the day in prayer and meditation.
