Sunday Services – 11th July

Dear all

Tomorrow (Sunday 11 July ) we have the following worship available in the Benefice:

In churches:

10am:             Holy Communion – St Michael’s Chaffcombe

                        Morning Worship – St Mary’s Thorncombe.  This is a special service for Sea Sunday.



An online service is available to view from anytime on Sunday 11th July through our YouTube channel or our website.  This service is on the theme of Costly Grace and uses images from St Stephen’s, Winsham; particularly touching on the Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, St Longinus, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s work ‘The Cost of Discipleship’.



  • This Sunday is also Sea Sunday.  Please remember all who live and work on, or connected to, the sea.  In thanks for their service and dedication and prayer for their safety.



  • Please hold Charlie Connett in your prayers as he celebrates his Baptism in Winsham tomorrow.
  • Please remember Winnie Barge (Tatworth) and her family and friends in your prayers.  She passed away on Thursday, and her funeral will be in St John’s on 29th July at 12pm.  


Blessings all
