Christian Aid Week 10th-16th May

No door to door collections or coffee mornings this year, but your donation is still desperately needed.  You can donate on-line  or by post to: Christian Aid, 35 Lower Marsh, LONDON SE17RL.  Cheques to be made payable to ‘Christian Aid’.

Thank you so much, God bless and keep safe.  Ros and Sarah



Sunday Mornings

We may not be able to come together in church at the moment but we invite you to join us in saying the Lord’s Prayer every Sunday morning at 10.30.

And take a look at our Altogether Not Together page for information on ways in which we, during these difficult times, can come together spiritually as the people of God (1 Peter 2.9).  God bless.

New Website for Bradninch Together

Bradninch Together, an initiative offering informal support for local people by local people now has its own website –  You will find plenty of information here on practical support.  In addition to how you can obtain local help with shopping, dog walking and collecting prescriptions.  There are also links to resources for health and well-being, parents and children, local food suppliers and much more.

 Co-ordinating informal support, neighbour to neighbour

Happy Easter

Today is a day of hope as we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.  He is risen indeed, Hallelujah!

An update and an Easter Message from Revd. Olly Mears is available now to watch on youtube .

Happy Easter to everyone from all of us here at St Disen’s.

Altogether even when not together

We may not be able to meet as a church to worship and pray during these difficult times but that doesn’t mean we can’t come together in other ways.  So please do take a look at our new Altogether Not Together page for some different ways in which we can still be together spiritually as the people of God (1 Peter 2.9).  God bless.

And we invite you to join with us at 10.30am on Easter Sunday to say The Lord’s Prayer together.



Church Closure

It is with great regret that, following government advice, St Disen’s Church will be closed until further notice.

However, that doesn’t mean we will be out of touch with you.  After all, a church is not a building, a church is all the people.  So we will continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable, and build our communities, even while separated.

And, don’t forget, Bradninch Together is there to help local people in need, with such things as shopping, collecting medication or dog walking.


Light a candle of hope

Church Together in England invites everyone to light a candle in their window at 7.00 pm this evening, 22nd March, and to pray for our nation and world in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. Through this shared symbolic action we can also find unity even in our separation.  Please take a look at their website for more information.

Bradninch Together Update 20th March

Bradninch Together is now live with leaflets being delivered by Royal Mail.  The parish has been divided into different zones with co-ordinators for each area.  So please do get in touch with them if you need a helping hand.  They can help with such things as shopping, collecting medication and dog walking, as well as a friendly phone call.  More information, including contact details for the co-ordinators of each zone can be found on our Bradninch Together page.

Virtual Church Service

The BBC have announced that a virtual church service, initially led by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, will take place across local radio in England on Sunday mornings.  There will also be a special service for Mothering Sunday.  See the Church of England website for further information.

Coronavirus COVID-19 update from The Church of England

Following the advice of the Church of England all forthcoming services and events have been cancelled until further notice.

But as they say, we will not be ‘shutting up shop’.  Instead we will be looking to become a ‘different kind of church, one rooted in prayer and serving others’.  More details on how this will happen in Bradninch to follow.

In the meantime the church will remain open during the day.  Please remember though when coming into the church to keep the recommended distance from anyone else who may also be there at the same time.
