The Wider Community

The wider community…at home

Totnes Food Bank is a Christian community project being run in conjunction with local agencies to identify and serve families in crisis. It covers Totnes and the immediate surrounding area. We collect these types of food :- dried rice, pasta and noodles, tinned soups, meat, vegetables and puddings, sugar, tea and coffee, biscuits, squash & cereals, UHT drinks – milk & fruit juice, dried foods & non-perishables. Gifts are left in a box at the back of the church for collection or cash donations are very welcome.

…and abroad : The Janani home in Pondicherry, India.

Katie is the daughter of Sandra, who sings every week in the choir. Marldon Church members also help to support Katie’s work in Pondicherry, where many girls are not provided the resources they need to acquire a good education, live a safe life, and overcome the many obstacles that women in India have to face. The home aims to remove children from neglectful and abusive homes, and gives them a chance to be surrounded by loving individuals. Additionally, many come from poor families that do not have the financial resources to support them. Janani home provides proper shelter, food and structured day for the young girls living there. They attend evening school daily and various extracurricular activities such as art, dancing and singing, while the girls have access to quality medical care.

Our usual Sunday services at Marldon in February and March are at 9.15 am. However, there will be NO service in Marldon on Sunday March1st- instead there will be a Team Service at St. Mary's, , Totnes at 10.30 am led by Revd Preb Julian Ould - his last service.
The usual fifth Sunday Team Service at the end of March (Mar29th) will be held at Bridgetown at 10.30 am, so again there will be NO service at Marldon on that day.

Celtic Communion services are on the fourth Sunday of the month ( Feb 23rd, and Mar 22nd) - a shorter, spoken service, still at 9,15
All welcome to any or all of our services. We'd love to see you there!
