STARTING A NEW MISSION COMMUNITY with South Brent and Rattery

On November 1st the 5 parishes of our existing Dart Valley Mission Community (Buckfastleigh, Dean Prior, Landscove, Littlehempston and Staverton) joined together with the parishes of South Brent and Rattery to form the DART AND AVON MISSION COMMUNITY.
Tom will continue as our vicar, though his official title will change to Rector. A new Vicar is being appointed to be based in South Brent, but for various reasons will not be in place until next June. Our existing ministry team (Fiona, George, John, Jenny and David) will continue and will be augmented by two retired clergy, John Summers and Peter Taylor, and a Reader, Pam Saunders, all of whom are based in South Brent and Rattery.
There will be a launch service on Sunday November 18th at 10.30am in St Petroc's Church, South Brent, (replacing our normal morning service that day), followed by a bring-and-share lunch.

When Christians Disagree
The next meeting of this discussion group will be on Friday December 7th at 2.00pm in the lounge. Having looked last time at an important period in the life of the church in the past - the Protestant Reformation - the subject this time will be a more modern influence - the charismatic movement. This has had huge influence, but sometimes church members can be remarkably unaware of it; it has brought great benefits, but like all human movements there have been weaknesses too. Come and discuss and think, seeking together to see more clearly what God offers us through his Holy Spirit.

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 and we are now starting to explore how to deal with this. A small committee has been set up to examine the cause of the problem and to make suggestions about possible remedial action, together with any other improvements that may be appropriate. We are at an early stage in this process, and further information will be made available as we progress.
