Support and care - our church buildings may be shut, but care for those in our parishes continues to be a priority, both for those who are church members and for those who aren't. So do get in touch via the details on the Contact page.
Funerals - sadly deaths are occurring, whether from Covid-19 or from other causes. Only very limited numbers of mourners are allowed to attend the funeral service, and of course contact with clergy prior to the service has to be by phone, not by a home visit. But various arrangements are in place and funeral services are still being held. Contact Rev Tom Benson on 07730575312 (Buckfastleigh, Dean Prior, Staverton, Landscove & Littlehempston) or Rev Gina Radford (South Brent and Rattery) on 07903400480 for support and help in your time of loss.
Donation of scrubs to Torbay Hospital etc - a request has been received for donations towards the cost of a scheme for providing scrubs for Torbay Hospital, GP surgeries and care homes - for details click here
