I’m New

You would be very welcome to join us at 9.15 on a Sunday morning at St. John the Baptist, Marldon.

What happens at the Sunday service?

  • Worship and teaching.
  • We share communion if you wish to take it.
  • Space at the back for children to play, and Junior Church joins us near the end of the service.
  • Most services last about 70-75 minutes.
  • Refreshments after the service are served in the Village Hall and we’d love to meet you there.

What do I do?

  • All the words are in a service booklet and hymn book.
  • You can sit anywhere.
  • There’s no dress code.
  • There is a collection during the service so you can give money if you wish to. Many people give through their bank accounts.
  • We don’t worry about noisy babies or young children!

How do I get there?

  • There is a village car park on the road just past the church (opposite the Church House Inn), and others park on the road nearby.
  • The entrance is either from the main gateway off Church Hill or through the gate by the Church House Inn.

Accessibility

  • There is room for buggies inside the church and always plenty of people on hand to assist should you need it.
  • There is a toilet by the church (not disabled) with further toilets, disabled facilities and baby changing facilities in the Village Hall nearby.
  • Space for wheelchairs; for any people who need assistance with access, please contact Steph Webb, Churchwarden.
  • Large print materials are available; again, please just ask.

Since the govt. introduction of emergency measures, Churches are now not allowed to be open at all, even for private prayer, though we are still continuing ministry, prayer and worship but in a different way.

Katherine Courtice is going to be collecting prayer requests for people affected by the virusand will pass them all on to the priest leading prayers on a Wednesday. Please advertise widely in your communities that any prayer requests (for the sake of restricting volume, mentioning only the first name and last initial of the person needing prayer (e.g. Steve J.) for people who are sick or bereaved are to be emailed to totnesteamadmin@googlemail.com for inclusion in the Wednesday prayer list.

We are inviting people to stop and pray everyday at 12 Noon, reciting the Lord’s Prayer. In this we unite our voices and hearts before God, as we make our prayers and petitions.

Parish Caring Service We are in the process of setting up a telephone listening and befriending service, please contact totnesteamadmin@googlemail.com for any requests and these will be dealt with as soon as possible.
