First Things First

Prayer is the foundation of everything we do.

Our monthly prayer meeting is an informal setting in which we can come together to pray for members of our congregations, the ministry of the Haldon Team and broader church and world issues. These meetings will take place on the first day of each month and, where possible, in different venues across the team.

Our next meeting will be on Friday 1st October at 5pm at St John's, Bishopsteignton. Everyone is welcome, regardless of which church community you belong to. It will last about 30-45 minutes.

And please do join our Online services & Compline (Night Prayer)

We are posting a monthly mailing of news, information and resources to everyone across the six churches who is not on the internet. This costs about £70 per month (which is mainly the postage) and we are so greateful to those who have given generously to support this initiative. Such as been that generosity that we have had not had to appeal for more funds since the beginning of the year. We currently have enough money to cover the mailings which will go out up and until the end of October. If you can help please contact John Plumb, Treasurer at St John's, Bishopsteigton (01626 775507) who looks after thsi on behalf of the Team.
