As usual, the service will be available via Zoom at 11.30am. See below for details.

It's not too late to book a place at the curry night, which will be at the Taj Mahal in Budleigh at 6.30pm on Thursday 13th October.
Everyone is welcome to join us. If you'd like to come please let Pat know.
To help the restaurant order the right amount of food, they would like food orders in advance. Please have a look at the menu by clicking here, then let Pat know your choices by Monday 10th October. Please be aware that the prices for eating in are slightly higher than those published.
Our service on Sunday 16th October will be focussed on BMS World Mission, and in particular their work in rural communities in Nepal.
As part of the service there will be a special collection for BMS. Envelopes will be available this week, so please take one if you can.
We'd also love it if a couple of people could volunteer to bake cakes to serve after the service. If you're able to help, please speak to Julia.
Our next church members' meeting will take place on Wednesday 19th October, starting at 7.30pm in the chapel.
This will include a short special church meeting for one decision that needs to be made. Please join us if you possibly can.
There will be another working party at the chapel on Friday 21st October from 10am-12pm.
This is a chance to help do some basic maintenance, cleaning and clearing out. We'd love to see lots of you there!
On Friday 11th November the church will be hosting a quiz night at the chapel. The evening will start at 6pm and include fish and chips.
More details will follow soon, but please put the date in your diaries for now!

BMS World Mission
Please join us as we pray for the fabulous BMS community this week!
- Pray for churches celebrating the harvest festival using the BMS Good Land appeal. Pray that this resource would remind us of all the many blessings we have, and the opportunity to share these with others.
- Pray for mission workers who have recently completed their service with BMS. Pray that their vital work will have a lasting impact — and that those they are handing work over to will be equipped by God to allow these ministries to flourish.
- Pray for churches in the UK that have closed in the last year. Pray that their legacies would live on within their communities and new life would appear.
