We have a team of musicians to lead our worship and to accompany the organist. The Alpha course is strongly supported as a means of nurturing as well as introducing the Christian faith. Mid-week groups also meet for men, women and young people. A weekly prayer group meets at the Village Hall. Our priority as a church family is to know the Lord Jesus Christ and to make him known in ways that are relevant and meaningful to today's society. We offer a very warm welcome to everyone, especially to younger generations and families.
SAINT ANDREW'S CHURCH
St Andrews is a small, picturesque church building tucked away on the outskirts of the village on the Framingham Earl to Yelverton road. We have three Sunday services a month. With the arrival of new heaters in St Andrews', the early services at 8.00am with said Parish Communion, are now held throughout the year. The other service at 11.15am is also a Parish Communion at which there is an organist. We sing from the Mission praise hymnbook, which is helping to gradually expand our repertoire. Common Worship is used. The 11.15am service has recently alternated between a Parish Communion and a Family Service. Family Services have often incorporated a special event such as Harvest or Christmas, baptisms are held at this service as well.
For information on the planned refurbishment of St Andrew's please follow this link to the St Andrew's Narthex Project
SAINT MARY'S CHURCH
This is the smallest active parish in the Poringland Benefice serving the 50 or so people who live in the hamlet of Howe. A regular service is held each month on the fourth Sunday, though this arrangement usually changes for Easter and Christmas.
The main Sunday service is held at 11.15am. Please refer to the Benefice Diary for any changes in time.
There is a small but loyal congregation which averages from 9 to 10 and a kitchenette and toilet extension has been added to enhance the building.
