Introducing Mr Scott Angell our new Curate

The acting Bishop of Exeter, Rt Rev Jackie Searle, has appointed Scott to be the new Curate of the Honiton Mission community.   This is subject to all legal requirements being met.

Scott is currently a final year Ordinand at St Mellitus Theological College based in Plymouth.  He is also the college’s national Choir Director for this year.  He is working with the Westdartmoor Mission community based on Dartmoor.  He is member of the Society of Catholic Priests (Ordinand Chapter).  He is really looking forward to meeting all in the benefice, within the first few weeks of being here. 

Scott will start in the benefice from his Ordination on the 29th of June 2024 at Exeter Cathedral.

Resources for children, families and young people

Exeter Diocese have developed a huge range of resources and activities for children of all ages.

Have a look at what they have to offer here

also there are some craft ideas here

Baptisms & Weddings

Weddings and Baptisms are now permitted with no specific number restrictions, and people should contact the Parish Office in the first instance to get the appropriate application form.  

Once completed the form should be returned to the office when a date will be offered for baptisms, and hopefully agreed for weddings.

Funerals

Funerals are now unrestricted in numbers attending.

The Funeral Directors will arrange the date of the funeral direct with the Parish Office.

Some Funeral Directors take a list of who attends as  information for the family.

The Churches in our Mission Community

Our Mission Community website

If you are expecting to see the St Paul’s, Honiton website at this address, then let’s explain.

The domain name “HonitonCofE.org” feels more appropriate to the whole of the church in the Honiton area. So we have decided to make this the page that will cover all the activities that involve and affect all the parishes and churches in the Honiton Mission Community (HMC).

Each church’s individual page(s) can be linked by:
 * clicking on the appropriate image,   or
 * by selection from the menu,   or
 * direct from your browser using the format www.HonitonCofE.org/{church} (eg. www.HonitonCofE.org/Awliscombe)

We hope that you like the result and we look forward to receiving feedback and suggestions on how we can keep this important resource up-to-date and relevant.

SAFEGUARDING in the Honiton Mission Community – Promoting Safer Churches

The parishes of Awliscombe, Buckerell, Combe Raleigh, Cotleigh, Gittisham and Honiton (which make up the Honiton Mission Community) are committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk to worship and grow in Christ safely.
Concerns about children, young people and adults at risk will be diligently and promptly responded to according to our procedures, recognising the sensitivity it may hold for those involved.
As a Mission Community (group of parish churches) we have adopted the House of Bishops ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance. 
All our PCCs (Church Councils) have formally adopted this and signed a Safeguarding Policy Statement Promoting a Safer Church and a copy of this can be found on each church’s page on this site. 
We have also displayed the Promoting a Safer Church poster prominently within each church.
All those working with children and adults at risk have undergone safer recruitment, received safeguarding training and support.
If you have a concern about the safety of someone or the actions of someone working with children or vulnerable adults, please speak to the appropriate contact for your church – see the list or visit the church’s page on this website:

You could also contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Team at https://exeter.anglican.org/resources/safeguarding/safeguarding-team/

If you are a young person and you feel unhappy about something happening to you, you can call Childline on 0800 11 11.
