Church Services

Visitors and friends will be welcome to join

us at worship in any of the four churches in

our Benefice.  Services follow the monthly

pattern shown below.  This month’s services

at Holy Rood Church Buckland Newton

appear opposite.

The Service on the fifth Sunday (when this occurs) rotates around the four churches.   Full details of all Buckland Newton services are posted at Buckland Newton Church in the Porch and on the noticeboard outside the church gate.

A farm service is an important date in the Christian Calendar when traditionally we “bless the seeds and fields.”  Farmers Tim and Emily Jones will host our 2018 Farm Service at Rew Head Farm and we invite you, your friends and happy animals to join us when the children will “plant” a seed and enjoy the service in a special family way.  After the service simple refreshments. will be offered.  Please bring a plate - sandwiches or cake or biscuits or anything you wish to share.  This replaces our normal ‘in church’ service for this day. Help please! New recruits are needed to join the church cleaning team, could you spare a couple of hours, 3 times a year, to keep the church clean, polished and cared for? Please contact Wendy, 345427, or Jennie, 345374. Thank you. Events Group: New members would be most welcome to join this group which exists to promote fund raising events for the proposed new heating system and toilet facilities for Buckland Newton Church.
