We hope many of you managed to see the church over the Harvest weekend looking as beautiful as ever thanks to our team of flower arrangers. Although written before the event, I am sure the produce will be well received in the village, at the Open Door in Exmouth and at St Petrock’s in Exeter.

Regular church services include some which take place outside Lympstone. On the first Sunday of each month at Holy Trinity, Exmouth from 7pm is the ‘Service with no name.’ The Lympstone Worship Band plays and there is a different speaker each month followed by refreshments and a time to socialise.

On the second Sunday, at Woodbury, there is a service of Evensong, a much neglected service in recent times. Rev. Geoffrey Wrayford is leading the service there at 6.30pm.

Lympstone’s own Morning Worship service is on the third Sunday of the month and begins at 10am (9.30am for coffee, croissants and a chat before the service.)

Junior Church continues at all 9.30am services and there is a service every Sunday at 8am – everybody is welcome to come to any or all.

A Christian discipleship course began on 28th September, on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.15pm in the Youth Hut on Candy’s Field. If you would like to join or express an interest in any future course please phone 01395 225153.

The church now has a new library of books to borrow. June Dingle has also bought a number of Bibles which may be found in the church pews. A range of different translations of the Bible and a large print copy are to be found on the library shelves.

The coffee morning for October will be from 10am until noon on Tuesday 25th at Burleigh, Longmeadow Road, the home of Barbara Neason.

Full information on all the above may be found in church or on the noticeboard under the railway arch.
