Welcome to The Yealm and Erme Mission Community
We are two benefices of 6 churches located in the beautiful South Hams.
We see our churches as a community we belong to, not just a place we go to.
Although our buildings are beautiful the real essence of our community is the people.
Everyone is welcome at any of our services, which provide different flavours of both traditional and contemporary worship.
We live in a strange new world that none of us have encountered before. Whether you have been a Christian your whole life or are just trying to make sense of life, hopefully you will be able to encounter God through some of what we can offer here. We don’t have all the answers but we know the One who does.
Daily Morning Prayer: Monday to Friday at 9.00am using Zoom.
Holy Communion (also Zoom)
Although all restrictions have now been removed, Covid infections are rising rapidly, including in our villages.
Out of love and concern for our fellow Christians who may still feel vulnerable, the clergy team requests that members of the congregation continue to wear face coverings in church and observe social distancing.
Communion will continue to be in one kind for the foreseeable future and if singing takes place it will be with masks on and while remaining seated.
However one change is that there is no need to book your seat in Church anymore.
It is also our aim to reopen all our Churches on a daily basis for visitors, but we will continue to maintain covid precautions with track and trace and sanitiser stations.
If you have any queries please contact Alison at email@example.com.
Like all churches, we have been hit by the impact of the pandemic with closed churches and cancelled events.
The need for your support is greater than ever.
There are various ways to give towards the work of your local church. You can find out more here
