Energy Rebate Scam
We've been asked to spread awareness that a number of people in Devon and Cornwall have been receiving emails and text messages stating that the recipient is “owed” or “eligible” for an energy bill discount as part of the Energy Bill Support Scheme. The links in the emails lead to genuine-looking websites that are designed to steal your personal and financial information.
If you receive a message like this, please ignore it. You do not need to apply for the Energy Bill Discount Scheme. Never hand over any personal information. For more information please click here.

BMS World Mission
Please join us as we pray for the nation of Nepal this week.
- Farmers in the Ghusel community often lose livestock to preventable diseases. Pray that the Good Land appeal would provide much-needed training opportunities for farmers, enabling livestock to survive and thrive.
- Pray that the Good Land appeal would raise the level of education provision in Ghusel, encouraging parents to prioritise both compulsory and further education for their children.
- BMS worker and physiotherapist, Pippa Vokuhl, conducted a review of therapy services available through our partner the International Nepal Fellowship. Pray that her review leads to excellent practice and targets resources where most needed.
Please note that we will be holding a special service focussing on the Good Land Appeal on Sunday 16th October.
