Online Church Services, Prayers & Worship
This Sunday we will be heading to Sherford Community Church. Rev’d Tom Brassil will be speaking on ‘How God Grows His Kingdom’ from the Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13.
The Archdeacon of Exeter led an online service on the subject of ‘Stepping Out of the Boat.’ The service was filmed in Sidmouth and includes contributions from a variety of people sharing their own stories of when they have stepped out in faith. The music for the service was specially recorded by the worship band from St Matt’s Exeter. Read all about the service here.

Re-creation in August
During August we are offering 4 reflections on Mondays. We hope they will be an opportunity for lay and ordained leaders across the Diocese to take a moment for spiritual refreshment and re-creation. We start with one by Bishop Robert.
The Daily Hope phone line is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044. It is run by the Church of England and includes daily hymns, reflections and prayers. Please share information about it with anyone you know who is not online. Read more
