Regular Activities

Home groups

We have fellowship groups meeting in the evening. All our groups study the bible and enable us to get to know a small group of people in more depth so we can support, pray and encourage each other in our faith. Home groups are an excellent way of asking questions and thinking through God's message to us in the Bible in a friendly and supportive environment. If you would like to join a Home Group please contact Simon Talbot 01884 562570 simon@thetalbots.org.uk

Coffee and Chat

Catching up with old friends and making new ones over a cup of tea or coffee is what "Coffee and Chat" is all about! This group is run by volunteers and runs each week on Monday and Thursdays from 10 til 11.30am in Square Corner Cafe. Everyone is welcome!

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over seven thought-provoking weekly sessions. If you would like information on our next course please contact Simon Talbot 01884 562570 simon@thetalbots.org.uk

Prayer

We believe that prayer is central to our faith, and seek to develop our prayer ministry throughout the life of the Church.

Bellringing

St Mary’s is proud to have a peal of 8 bells including tenor 21 cwt. The Tower is a member of the North East Branch of the Guild of Devonshire Ringers. The happy band of ringers, under Tower Captain Alison Milne, practice on Mondays 7.30 – 9pm and have been known to retire for refreshment afterwards at the local Ostler Inn. They ring on all Sunday mornings except the fifth Sunday at 10.30am. They are also available to ring for Weddings. New members are always welcome, whether beginners or experts. The Tower is permitted two Peal Attempts a year during the summer months and Quarter Peals once a month. Visiting bands are always welcome and should contact the Secretary Angie Cheshire.

The tower has attracted a wide range of visiting ringers with some expert touches rung over the years. The Uffculme bells remain an attractive ring for visiting bands.
