We meet together every Sunday at 10.30am to hear God’s word, to be encouraged and strengthened together in our faith, to praise & worship Him for Who He is, to pray together to Him, and to enjoy, and benefit from, the company of other believers.
Our morning services last for about 95 minutes (a little longer if there is communion), and at the centre of that is the time when we listen to God’s word, both read and preached. We believe that God has given us living words that will help us to grow into changed people, if we allow them to! Because we want to respect God’s word and gain as much as possible from it, our sermons usually take the form of systematic expository preaching – that is to say, we follow a particular book of the Bible, or a theme, through several weeks until there is a natural break.
We also enjoy singing good songs and hymns, both new and old, and twice a month we incorporate the Lord’s Supper into the service.
We also meet on Sunday evenings at 6.30pm. These are more informal meetings where we may share some refreshments together, discuss further what we've heard in the morning, practice some new songs, and spend some time in prayer. During the summer we sometimes meet for an afternoon walk, before our meeting which is held at about 7.00pm. On the third Sunday of each month (not August) we join with Emmanuel Baptist Church in Sidmouth for an evangelistic Cafe-style meeting.
During the week we meet on a Wednesday evening, alternating between a meeting focused on Bible Study one week and a meeting with prayer as the focus the following week. These meetings take place in the homes of members of our congregation.
Usually about the first Friday of the month we hold a Men's Prayer Breakfast at 8.00am at a local cafe, followed by prayer at the church. The Ladies meet for Breakfast on the first Saturday of the month.
Also on the first Saturday of each month from 4.00pm - 6.00pm we hold a Games Afternoon. Board games, pool, table tennis, quizzes and video games are included in our time together, and light refreshments are available.
Admission is free and all are welcome.

You may not have realised it (especially if you have not been here for the whole of the last 10 years!), but since 2010 we have been making our way through Matthew's gospel, starting with The Sermon on the Mount (chs 5-7).
