I taught English and was Senior Housemistress at Epsom College, a large coeducational day and boarding school in Surrey before becoming a priest. I am currently Team Vicar of Totnes (with seven parishes and nine churches) and I am the Rural Dean of Totnes and Interfaith Adviser for the Diocese of Exeter.
I am particularly drawn to monastic wisdom and contemplative prayer, relishing opportunities to engage with people, who would describe themselves as spiritual rather than religious. I delight in discovering the sacred in the ordinary. I am re-created by singing with Devonly Voices Community Choir, walking the coast path, Pilates, reading and relaxing with family and friends.
We are delighted to say that St John Baptist, Marldon church will be OPEN for private prayer on Sundays and Wednesdays from 10-12 am from now on. Please follow the guidance and keep safe.
We warmly invite you to worship with us, and aim to create a relaxed atmosphere at our services. We welcome children at our services and for the younger ones we have a lovely space at the back of the church with toys, books and colouring activities where they can play if they wish. Older children are of course very welcome to join the Junior Church – please see their section for more info. We intend for our church and service to be accessible for all so if there is anything you need assistance with please speak to one of our Churchwardens.
Every Sunday: 9.15 a.m. Morning Worship
A service with a short talk and Holy Communion (with Junior Church in the village hall for the first part of the service.) Most services last about 70-75 minutes.
…But the 4th Sunday in the month: 9.15 a.m. Family Service
Less formal, with said mass. This is a more interactive service with the junior church joining in with presenting dramatised readings etc.
…And if there are 5 Sundays in a month
On the 5th Sunday we meet church members in one of the other Totnes team churches. There is NO service at Marldon that week!
Fortnightly on Monday afternoons for lively discussion and thoughtful prayer. All warmly welcome at Linden lea, Marldon Cross from 2.00 to 3.30 pm.
