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.
Our new team vicar
The Reverend Professor Gina Radford was licensed and installed on 12th June at a joyful service in St Petroc’s, South Brent, as Team Vicar in the Dart and Avon Team Ministry. Gina will work on a half-time basis, with special responsibility for the parishes of
South Brent and Rattery.
The picture shows her with Bishop Robert of Exeter who led the service.
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.
Further new members of the ministry team
We welcome another retired ordained minister to the team, Charles Masheder. Now that he has received his PtO (Permission to Officiate) he has joined the rest of the ministry team in leading services and preaching.
In addition, Laura McAdam will be ordained on September 14th to serve as curate, serving mainly in our two larger churches of Buckfastleigh and South Brent.
