Welcome

Welcome to St Paul’s website in this season of Advent.  In these four weeks before Christmas we are busy preparing for the great Feast of Christmas and the birth of God’s only Son, Jesus, as a vulnerable and helpless baby in Bethlehem.  On our website you can find details of our Advent activities.  We hope that there is something there to suit various ages and tastes! 

Although we’re busy preparing, it’s also  good to take some time out to reflect upon the real meaning of Christmas, so that we don’t overlook that greatest present of all time: God’s healing and forgiving love made known to us in his Son, Jesus. 

You might like to use this prayer in a quiet moment.

 

Advent God, we journey with you
to Bethlehem’s stable and a new-born King,
ears attuned to the song of angels,
eyes alert for Bethlehem’s star.
Forgive us if on our journey
we are distracted by the tempting offers of this world. 
Keep our hearts aflame with the hope of Christmas,
and the promise of a Saviour. Amen.
 John Birch, from the Mother’s Union website

 

On Tuesday and Saturday Mornings, to coincide with Honiton’s market days, we have a Coffee Morning between 10:00 am & 12:00 noon, and everyone is welcome.

We are part of a Mission Community with the villages of Awliscombe, Buckerell, Combe Raleigh and Gittisham.

St. Paul’s is on facebook. You can find all the latest news and updates on https://www.facebook.com/honitoncofe

CHRISTMAS TREE CELEBRATION RETURNS TO HONITON in 2016

There are just a few places left for entries . . .

Following the fantastic success last year which attracted over 500 visitors, St Paul’s Church in Honiton is once again holding a Christmas Tree Celebration in December. (from Thursday 8th until Sunday 11th).

The organising committee invite all local businesses and organisations to provide a tree decorated by themselves to reflect their particular interests. This proved extremely popular last year with 36 trees on display showing the wide diversity that makes Honiton such a vibrant market town.

All trees will be placed within the church and a full programme prepared detailing which business or organisation it has been provided by. Details of the tree, together with the name of the organisation or company, will also be displayed by the tree. 

If your organisation or business is interested in taking part in the Christmas Tree Celebration in any way, please contact Julia Beaman on 01404 548709.
