The Middle East. The situation in the Middle East has disturbed us all. Below is a prayer from the Anglican Archbishop of Jerusalem. There is an Appeal from the Anglican Hospital in Gaza (run by the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem) which is in urgent need of supplies. You can donate to the emergency appeal here.

O God of all justice and peace we cry out to you in the midst of the pain and trauma of violence and fear which prevails in the Holy Land.
Be with those who need you in these days of suffering; we pray for people of all faiths – Jews, Muslins and Christians and for all people of the land.
While we pray to you, O Lord, for an end to violence and the establishment of peace, we also call for you to bring justice and equality to the peoples. Guide us into your kingdom where all people are treated with dignity and honour as your children, for to all of us you are our Heavenly Father. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen. 

Please go to our Worship page or our weekly Dear Friends for further details.
We look forward to warmly welcoming you to any of our events.

In addition we have a number of active Bible study and prayer groups.
There is an active, albeit small, Mothers Union Diocesan Member Branch comprising both ladies and gentlemen!

We see ourselves as a church serving our community.
We undertake a number of “life events” services – baptisms, weddings and funerals.
If you would like to discuss these please either email or call the Vicar at revginar@gmail.com or 07903 400480; or via the contact us on the Home page.

We have a large and flourishing band of bellringers, who in the past have won the Devon Major 6 Bell-ringing final.
We are in the process of creating a bellringing Centre of Excellence at St. Petroc’s.

Our church building itself dates from Saxon times and was enlarged at various stages .
Most of the building we see today was in existence in 1436.
With considerable financial assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund, together with several church and local charities, we have recently completed a major refurbishment of the Norman tower of St Petroc’s, whilst simultaneously improving both the electricity supply and internal lighting of the Church The local community energy group has helped us to overhaul the heating system.
