The Church Produce Stall has one more weekend to come; Saturday 15th September from 9.30 am until all the produce has sold. Thanks to all our supporters, the producers, the purchasers and the sellers who ran the stalls through the summer.

Party for Newcomers to the Village will be at 6 until 8 pm in the Church on Saturday 22nd September. This event is to welcome all who have moved into the village in the last three years and to answer all the questions you have. If we don’t know we will at least be able to point you in the right direction.

Mission Community Lympstone is grouped with Littleham and Holy Trinity churches in Exmouth. There will be a service for the whole community, at Holy Trinity, on Sunday 23rd September 10am. Here in Lympstone there will be no 9.30am service, but the normal 8am service will be as usual. The team rector is Rev James Hutchings (225212) and the team vicar is Rev Benedict Cambridge. The Parish Office is at Holy Trinity and may be contacted on 01395 263681.

‘Meeting God!’- a course of study, fellowship and worship run by Sid Humphries will run on Thursday 13th, 20th, 27th September and Wednesday 3rd October (when there is a bring and share supper), at 7.15 to 9 pm in the church. Anyone interested should collect a booklet from by the notice board in church.

Harvest Supper will this year be on Saturday 6th October at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall. It would be lovely if we could have some new volunteers for setting up the hall, cooking and clearing up – especially people who will not be going to the cathedral on that day. Any queries, please see Jean Young, Mary Blair or Jill Wilson. Notices will appear on the telegraph poles and everyone in the village is welcome to come and share and celebrate the harvest home.

Family Worship: The church is planning services which are all age welcoming and friendly to families. We hope more will want to come and share a service which is easier to follow and, we hope, more relevant to those who have not been to church or been away for some time. We are thinking about layout and format of the service with some experimental services will be held beginning on 9th September.

Morning Praise – the October Morning Praise Service – will be the first with Demelza Henderson leading the worship. This will be, as usual, on the third Sunday, 21st October at 9.30am for coffee and refreshments and the service begins at 10am. Everyone is welcome at this and all our services and events.
