Devon Historic Churches Day

The second Saturday in September (this year 11th September) is Devon Historic Churches Day the main fund raising event for the Devon Historic Churches Trust.  The day incorporates Ride & Stride, a national initiative to encourage people to walk, run or cycle to visit their local or not so local church(es). 

The DHCT was founded in 1973 in order to raise money to fund repairs to any and all of Devon’s 600 plus parish churches.  If you would like to give a donation please visit their web page.

St Disen’s will be open on Saturday 11th September, 2.00 – 4.00pm. We are also now open regularly on Wednesdays and will be open too on Saturday, 25th September coinciding with the Bradninch Fair and from the beginning of October the church will be daily Monday-Saturday, approx. 10.00am – 4.00pm and for worship on Sunday mornings.

More wedding bells

Children’s Society Coffee Morning

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the wonderful garden party coffee morning in aid of The Children’s Society. The weather was glorious, the garden beautiful and there were lovely cakes on sale. The morning raised just over £265 and in addition, the box collection came to more than £600.00, a tremendous total. Our thanks also especially to Lyn for organising and to our hostess for her lovely garden.

Baptism of Lydia Florence

We were delighted to welcome Lydia together with her family, godparents and friends to St Disen’s on Sunday, when she was baptised by Revd Olly Mears.

Prayers for Plymouth
