Here's a short video for you to enjoy on our church made by two young members of our congregation.
'Community' is often an over-used word but in Salcombe it remains as something which is very tangible. This is an unique town with a unique parish church. The town is a popular holiday destination and enjoys particular fame for its sailing community. As a church we therefore extend our welcome to visitors and seasonal parishioners. Our hope is that everyone can feel a sense of belonging to our church community.
In a typical year have lots of groups and community activities based here. Here are some examples of what is happening within our grounds.
Salcombe Community Gospel Choir
For most of the year this fantastic choir meets on Thursday evenings for rehearsals from 7.30pm and is always ready for new recruits. There are no auditions and new members need not worry about needing great music skills. The choir runs a 6.30pm evening service on the third Sunday of the month which is very spiritual and well attended. The choir is also a popular choice for weddings and special events. If you want the choir to sing at your gathering book early! For more information go to their website on www.salcombegospelchoir.co.uk
Time-Out in the Rafters (Starting again in October)
On Friday afternoon from 1pm to 3pm there is the opportunity to drop in for tea, coffee, cake (and healthy fruit too) upstairs in the Upper Room in our church. Come when you can, go when you want. Time-Out is popular with parents with young children but is also open to all ages. We also have soft-play toys, art materials and children's books.
Thursday Morning Church Carers
Thursday morning a group of keen volunteers aided by the residents of St Peters Foundation come and clean the interior of the church. There is much laughter and fellowship and our caring team is as much about friendship as it is about Brasso. We meet with the clergy for Morning Prayer at 9.15am and finish around 11am.
The Church choir meets on Fridays at 5pm for rehearsals and sings at the majority of church services. The choir is also popular at funerals and memorial services in bolstering up the singing.
