A chance to share passion for life and faith at Sid Valley church mission weekend

FROM bead jewellery making to woodland walks, cream teas to a candlelit dinner, there was something for everyone to enjoy during last weekend’s church mission throughout the Sid Valley.

The series of events, organised by local churches, got off to a wonderful start with more than 70 adults and children taking part in a special Messy Church held at St. Francis’ church hall.

While ladies got creative with Beads and Baraza the men enjoyed a talk by Paul Morrish of Exeter City Football Club at the Saturday morning breakfast fry up.

For the more energetic, the ramble though Salcombe Hill Woods was well attended while a romantic candlelit dinner at Sidmouth Golf Club was more to some other people’s taste.

Food seemed to feature highly in many of the sessions with Music and Munch at both Salcombe Regis and Sidbury churches being well supported.

“The mission gave a wonderful opportunity for local Christians to share something of their passion for life and passion for their faith” said the Reverend Angie Gammon, curate at Sidmouth Parish Church.

“It was also great to be working with other denominations and we are already starting to plan for next year.”
