WELCOME!

April 19, 2011

Welcome to the website of the churches of
St Michael’s and St Barnabas, Devonport.

We meet for worship every Sunday,

For details of our social activities and all other meetings, see the side bar … together with links to our Facebook pages and all sorts of online resources.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)


Advance notice … Hidden Treasure

July 20, 2017

Saturday October 7th, Marjons Chapel, 10am – 3:30pm

Ladies … put this date in your diary now … don’t miss out on this opportunity to spend some time together, led by Suzanne Dugmore:

Suzanne is married to Barry, they have 3 married children and 6 grandchildren. When Barry was a parish priest in Tiverton, Suzanne started and ran a women’s ministry. She was seriously ill some years ago which has inspired her passion for people to know and connect with God’s unconditional love and for people to understand their identity in Christ. Her other passion is art; which played a big part in her recovery and ongoing expression of God’s love. Her portraits and work go out with the message ‘We are God’s masterpiece’ (Eph 2v10). She recently started the initiative Take Heart, a creative tool for accessible evangelism, and wellbeing.

Our Thursday evening group is meeting back at the Vicarage on July 6th at 7.30pm. We’re carrying on looking at the book of Acts.

Want to join us? Everyone is welcome to join us. It’s a great place to pray for one another and help one another grow in the faith. If you don’t know where the vicarage is, talk to Tim and he will give directions.

Look forward to seeing you!

The first Sunday of the month…

June 29, 2017

… what’s so special about that?

It means it’s All-Age Worship with something for every age, plus we have a bring and share lunch afterwards. So come along at 10.30am with the whole family, and food to share.

As for the service itself, it will be based around Jesus’ words in Revelation 3:20:

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.

Why not take some time to get ready for our worship by thinking through this verse and how you might need to respond?
