Consecration of Branscombe Churchyard

We are delighted to welcome the Bishop of Crediton, Rt. Revd Sarah Mullally, who will be visiting Branscombe to do this on Monday December 4th at 2pm. The consecration will take the form of a short act of worship outside in the churchyard.  Everyone is welcome to come and mark this historic event.
