The Dart and Avon Mission Community
This started officially on November 1st 2018 and was inaugurated at a service of Holy Communion on Sunday November 18th in St Petroc's Church, South Brent.
The service was followed by a bring-and-share lunch, with people from the different churches mingling together.

Good Friday on Brent Hill
As usual on Good Friday there was a procession with a cross from the middle of South Brent to the top of Brent Hill. A large number of people (and a good few dogs) processed, stopping at several places for a Bible reading, hymn and prayer, as we reflected on Jesus' crucifixion.
A new member of the ministry team
Laura McAdam was ordained on September 14th to serve as curate, mainly in our two larger churches of Buckfastleigh and South Brent.

In October our three bishops issued a pastoral letter arising from the confusion and divisions resulting from Brexit. Although some of it is a bit dated now that we have had the General Election, much is still relevant. To read the opening section of the letter and the concluding prayer, please click here
