Online Church Services, Prayers & Worship

This Sunday

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.

Watch the service from 10am on Sunday morning.

Last Sunday

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.

Watch the service below or from our Facebook page or on our You Tube page.
