Devon Historic Churches Trust Day -Ride and Stride

Devon Historic Churches Day


Saturday 9th September is the day on which churches throughout Devon - and, indeed, the whole country - welcome visitors and raise funds for their Historic Churches Trust. Some special events are held, but the main fundraiser is the sponsored cycle ride for which half the money goes to the participant's own church and half to the Devon Historic Churches Trust. Simply cycle to as many churches as you feel able to during the day, either individually or in a small group, having obtained sponsorship per mile or per church visited. It is a truly

inclusive event involving all age groups and abilities.


Whimple has supported this event for many years and in turn the Trust has grant-aided work on our church. The same is true of other villages in our Mission Community. It would be good if this year we could increase the number taking part, particularly some younger cyclists!


Further information and sponsor forms are available from Mike Ellingham, telephone 822945.


It is also important that visiting cyclists are welcomed to Whimple Church. If you can spare an hour during the day to be in the church please also contact Mike.

Thy Kingdom Come

On Saturday 27th May, a group of enthusiastic prayer-walkers roamed the lanes, fields and churches of the four villages praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, starting in Talaton and heading to Whimple (for coffee and cake), Clyst St Lawrence (for the loo!), Clyst Hydon (for a picnic lunch) and back to Talaton (for more tea and cake and the loo again). Over the course of the day, 25 or so people joined us, including the young and the not quite so young. 


Many thanks to all who came. Special thanks to Tim and Sheila, our intrepid leaders, for organising the route and the prayer resources. Thanks too to Mary and team for the delicious cakes at Whimple, to Hannah, David, Jenny and Graham for the welcome use of their facilities (!), to Hannah for the cold water and oranges, and to Sarah and Chris Jones for providing the very welcome cuppa over lunch together. Definitely worth doing again!

 Fit and Raring to Go
