Each of our five churches has regular services and events. Please see the individual page for each church, our news page and our calendar to find out more.
Holyford Mission Community
We took our name from the Holyford area of Colyford, which is in the middle of the whole Mission Community. Holyford woods is a local nature reserve.
We renamed our Mission Community at a special celebration service in Colyford Memorial Hall with the Bishop of Crediton, the Rt Revd Nick McKinnel, at Pentecost, May 19th 2013.
We hope that our life as a Mission Community enables each church to be a worshiping presence in every one of our local communities, whilst enabling us to do more together than we could do alone.
We meet regularly to worship as a Mission Community, for social events and for courses. Much of our work with families, children and young people is also shared.
Every parish has its own Parochial Church Council. We also have a Mission Community Council where ministers and representatives from all the parishes can work together.
A new leaflet shows a map of our five beautiful and historic churches, with some notes about each one, and gives suggestions for walking or driving around them. The complete circuit is about 18 miles (28 kilometers). The leaflet can be downloaded here.
St Andrew’s Colyton, New Zealand
St Andrew’s Colyton has links with St Andrew’s Colyton, New Zealand. In July 2013 members of St Andrew’s Colyton were delighted to welcome churchwarden Helen Maxwell from New Zealand (pictured here with Christine Sansom) during her visit to this country. She was presented with a small cross made of stained glass from the West window, to place in the church in New Zealand.
