St Mary's Church As part of Heritage Weekend, and in line with the 900th anniversary of the founding of the Diocese, the Devon Historic Churches Trust is inviting all of us to visit as many churches as possible on September 13th. And if you want to get sponsorship for your efforts, then you can not only help the Trust but also the Devon church of your choice. Proceeds are split 50/50. You can choose your own rules for sponsoring, eg visiting churches with spires, churches dedicated to a particular saint, or all the churches in one deanery.

St Mary's Church One man's rubbish.

I spend a lot of mental energy and self-discipline trying to stop myself becoming a grumpy old man. In particular I have given up complaining about issues like 'You can't get anyone to mend anything these days' (which isn't really that true anyway) or about the plethora of signs on our roads.

The past month has been an horrendous time for those living in the Far East following the cyclone in Myanmar (Burma) and the horrific earthquake in China. The scenes we have been shown on television or in the newspapers cannot begin to describe the anguish felt by the survivors. We have seen or heard of those in Myanmar who are denied the aid they so desperately need and yet is readily available - and those in China who have lost so many relatives, especially children in the schools that collapsed.

It takes place at 7.45pm and is the time to hear what has been going on in the various church groups over the past year.
