Meetings / Info
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.

Revd John Henry
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!
