On Sunday 3rd March, we welcomed Albie into our church through the ceremony of infant Baptism. Albie (Albert Luke Goodland) is the grandson of Sue and Steve Cresswell and it was great to have Albie, Naomi and Phil (mum and dad) and brothers Teddy and Billy with us. Lots of friends and family joined in the baptism service followed by coffee and Christening Cake.
Today, Sunday February 3rd, we have had a great service with a full church. We had baptisms of three little baby cousins. We welcomed Oscar James Charlish, Timothy David Walton and Brody Elliot Paynter into our church with parents, godparents, family and friends. Certificates of baptism and candles were presented to each baby. After the service, a three tier cake was cut and shared round. Thanks to the family. God bless.
On Friday 31st August 2018, there was a service of Induction and Welcome from the Ilfracombe and Barnstaple Methodist Circuit. for our new minister who has moved from Budleigh Salterton, Devon. The welcome was led by Revd. Ruth Whitehead, the Moderator of the URC South West Synod, and Revd. Graham Thompson, Chair of the Plymouth and Exeter Methodist District. Jonathan will minister to Braunton, Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Marwood and this should keep him quite busy. Do hope you find a bit of time for your hobbies of walking, cycling and gardening, Jonathan! We are all looking forward to getting to know Jonathan and Louise and hope they will soon feel very much at home in the wider North Devon community.
