Easter Story photos 2015

Welcome to the Bude & Holsworthy Methodist Circuit, part of the Plymouth & Exeter District. Our Circuit consists of 21 chapels and a number of strong cell/small groups that straddle the Cornwall / Devon border.

There are a number of things we do, the following is just a snap-shot, and merely gives a ‘flavour’ of our life in Christ.

We enable a rich and varied pattern of worship, from traditional to more contemporary expressions of worship.

We care pastorally for a wide and varied number of people, both through more traditional patterns of pastoral work and through chaplaincy (e.g. a livestock market Chaplaincy).

We have a number of small/cell groups meeting to explore the Christian faith in intentional discipleship.

We have youth and children’s work expressed in ‘Messy Church’, ‘Junior Church’, ‘Rock Solid’ Youth Church and outreach to un-churched young people.

There is a strong tradition of Christian musical expression through the Bude and Holsworthy Circuit Singers, ‘The Easter Story’ – a musical and dramatic production over the last few years and indeed through a pattern of concerts.

There are some low-key ‘Fresh Expressions’ and emerging patterns of church and there is a ‘heart’ for developing mission.

We are a group of people seeking to find ‘the way, truth and life’ of Jesus, believing he reveals the Father’s will for us. We seek to be empowered by the Spirit, for works of service, witness and our growing discipleship.

It has been my joy and privilege to be Superintendent Minister of a group of people trying to discern the Way for the future.

Revd John Henry

Superintendent Minister

Circuit Diary

For his last service at Whitstone Rev John Henry led an all age worship service where the young children from our new Sunday Club played an active part. The theme of the service was building our lives on a firm foundation with Jesus. To illustrate this John had the children answering questions on building sand castles, making Lego models and singing songs with John's accompaniment on his guitar! A truly interactive service for everyone with the underlying message well portrayed. This was followed by a bring and share lunch in the Sunday School for everyone then a few folk went for a walk from The Weir to Widemouth and back! Something we all agreed we should do more often!
