Finding the Light

A film of a Lenten art project led by Jan Lees for Holyford Mission Community, with participation from other church members. Please click to see the film.

In the film Jan demonstrates some of the techniques she uses with charcoal and erasers, offering insights into the way the art was created. This is followed by a gallery of the images created by Jan and the other participants, with reflections and poems.

Sunday evening candles

Many churches around the country are taking up the idea of a candle in the window not just on Mothering Sunday, but every Sunday at the moment at 7 pm. So please join us in this quiet witness of caring, faith and hope.

This week we are praying especially for our NHS.

Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord;
and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night;
for the love of thy only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.
Amen.

News about the Coronavirus situation

Following the advice of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, PUBLIC WORSHIP IN OUR CHURCHES HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. If you have any concerns, or need to tell us of people in particular need, please contact the Churchwardens or a member of the Ministry Team.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.

Posada 2019 – the journey continues

And so a detour to Colston…….where the Angel Gabriel makes a cameo appearance & they stop to do some paperwork.

Mary & Joseph came upon Abbeyfield, and knocked at the door, have you a room.  The manager said we have please come in, but I’m afraid we have a “ No pets policy” so the donkey will have to stay in the buggy shed.

…No room here but they got to watch Chiefs on the Telly and have a swift half before moving on…

Summer fun at Noah’s Ark

A Teddy Bears Picnic took place in warm sunshine at Noah’s Ark today (18th July) in the grounds of Chapel of Ease of Saint Michael, Colyford.  The children and their families enjoyed a teddy bear hunt, singing and dancing, parachute play and a story.  A lovely tea was provided by the wonderful team of volunteers and visiting German students kindly helped with face painting.  Noah’s Ark will recommence again in the new school term in September, but all the team would like to wish everyone a happy summer with your families.
