 Public Notice about the proposed changes to the legal structure of Poltimore with Huxham Parish.

After many months of discussion, this proposal moves Huxham from Poltimore Parish into Stoke Canon parish. This will provide stability for all the churches concerned and a more sustainable future. We are grateful to all the faithful supporters of all our churches. Poltimore and Huxham will continue to provide services at key times of the year and be available to mark the seasons of life.

If you have any questions surrounding this proposal, please feel free to be in contact with the Rector Katie Cross who can explain the process and thinking behind the scheme.

The Church is Still Here - message from Katie Cross

 Following the easing of Government restrictions, some of our church buildings are now open for private prayer. The is a list below of which churches are open and the days and times you can visit. We remain committed to supporting our local communities and doing what we can to keep everyone safe.

We are assessing the protocols to open for small services of worship, there are many regulations that we will need to adhere to and a limited number of volunteers to assist us.

In the meantime, we continue to worship together each Sunday, on the telephone and using Zoom. Just follow the instructions on the website to join us. We also have a booklet with simple services and prayers that can be downloaded for use in the home.

If you have any questions relating to weddings, baptism or funerals, please be in touch with our Rector Katie Cross who can assist you.

One of the key things we can continue to do in this unsettling time is to pray. We have been praying both for our communities and the world, for people near and far as we grapple with the current pandemic and asking God for his guidance and peace.

Although we may not be meeting together just yet, church life continues, so do please keep in touch!
