A new Sunday service with a special welcome for families
Starting on the first Sunday in May (May 5th) we are changing the format of the first Sunday of the month service to make it more suitable for families with children. There will be "Sunday Club" from 10.30am for the children, and we aim to give them opportunity to help with the service.

Problems with the church roof
Unfortunately we are experiencing problems with our church roof being prone to leaks. These have been evident for some time but are now getting worse, and we are exploring how to deal with this issue. A small committee was set up to examine the cause of the problem and to consider possible future action. The committee has undertaken initial engineering study work, which indicates the current roof technical design is unsuitable, requiring complete renewal of the roof covering to a new specification. Committing to this would require a major financial commitment, which therefore merits wider consideration of the current building condition and internal design to ensure our church building can meet current and future church and community needs in a sustainable manner. To better inform future decisions the PCC have embarked on a consultation process, initially amongst church members and subsequently we plan to consult more widely with those who live in Buckfastleigh, as we seek to decide on the right way ahead. Further details will be released as they are become clear.
