The Northmoor Team Ministry

We belong to the Church of England and are part of the Diocese of Exeter. There are currently fourteen active churches, including a 'Chapel of Ease' within the Okehampton and Northmoor Churches Team Ministry. There is also 'St Mary's' of Ashbury which does not have services on a regular basis.

What we stand for

We are proud to be part of the Christian Church around the world and to affirm our unity with other Churches in the town. We understand the purpose of the Church to be:

TELLING
Telling the good news of God's love for the world as shown to us in Jesus Christ.

NURTURING
Enabling Christians to grow in their understanding of God and of their faith

SERVING
Playing our full part in the life of the town, helping it to be a safe and healthy community, seeking ways to put our faith into practice.

TRANSFORMING
Recognising injustice in all its forms, speaking out against it and seeking to overcome it.

TENDING
Acknowledging our responsibility for the created world and trying to live in a sustainable way.
 

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful churches.

Announcement for churches in the Northmoor Team

Rev. Dr Ruth Hansford has been appointed as the Vicar and Ministry Area Leader in the Bro Ystumanner [pronounced ‘uh stee manner’] Ministry Area in the Diocese of Bangor in the Church in Wales. This is a group of six churches on the coast, north of Aberystwyth at the southern end of Snowdonia National Park. Ruth's last Sunday here will be February 11th 2018, when there will be a special service to celebrate her time here. Ruth and the family will be very sad to leave behind friends and colleagues in Devon, but are looking forward to the opportunities this new post brings.

Ruth is presently the Team Vicar of Hatherleigh, Meeth, Exbourne, Jacobstowe and Northlew in the Northmoor Team Ministry in the Diocese of Exeter.

We wish Ruth and her family every happiness in their new home.

What is Pilgrim?

“The Pilgrim course is a journey to the heart of God and to a living, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.” The Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

Pilgrim is a major new teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England. It aims to help every local church create a place where people can explore the Christian faith together and see how it can be lived out each day.

We are intending to have at least one of the pilgrim courses running somewhere within the Mission Community at all times and would also be very willing to facilitate a new group at any time too. Anyone who is interested can contact Revd Steve Cook, Revd Adrian Brook or Revd Ruth Hansford to find out more about pilgrim and what's going on at any particular time.
