Hand sanitiser is provided if you want to use it.
Masks are optional if you prefer to use one, please do so.

There is a Lent Course which will take place weekly (see below).

Eco Church is an A Rocha initiative to promote good stewardship of God’s Creation, spreading the Good News of God’s word.

A group from St Paul’s have been working on the online survey over the past three years, which was interrupted by Covid.

The survey covers 5 different aspects of church life:

  • Worship and teaching which includes services, prayer times and Bible study groups;
  • Caring for the buildings including the Mackarness Hall and the vicarage;
  • Use of the land around the church and St Michael’s churchyard;
  • Engaging with the local community and globally;
  • Personal lifestyle of the congregation, including recycling and LOAF.

St Paul’s has been successful in gaining Eco Church Bronze level award, (see the plaque on the kitchen wall.)

We are one of only 23 churches in Exeter Diocese which has gained this level, with only 4 Silver Awards and no Golds – as yet!

Please continue to be aware of the resources you use and the way you care for our environment as it will enable us to look at reaching out for a Silver Award.

If you are interested in joining us as we look forward to working for the Silver Award, do contact Julia Beaman 01404 548709 or through the Church Office 01404 44035.

Safeguarding

The parish of St Paul’s Honiton is committed to the safeguarding of all, especially children, young people, and vulnerable adults.

As a church we have adopted the House of Bishops’ National Safeguarding Policies and Practice, details of which are available on the Church of England website.

We have also displayed the ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ poster on the notice board in the church porch.

All those working with children and adults at risk have received safeguarding training and support.

Concerns about children, young people and adults at risk will be dealt with diligently and promptly, recognising the sensitivity it may hold for those involved.

If you have a concern about the safety of someone or the actions of someone working with children or vulnerable adults, please speak to our Parish Safeguarding Officer:

Lyn Thatcher 01404 41429

You could also contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Team.

If you are a young person and you feel unhappy about something happening to you, you can call Childline on 0800 1111.
