Holy Communion at St Gregory's
An open invitation to Midweek Communion Each Wednesday at 10am, a group gathers in the upper narthex at St Gregory's to join in a quiet celebration of Holy Communion. The service was moved up there during the winter, in order to be warm, but when Spring came, the regulars were unanimous in staying there as they found the more comfortable, intimate space to be particularly appropriate for this celebration. Some come in addition to their attendance on Sundays. For others, it's an alternative which they recommend to anyone who is finding Sunday services difficult, as many people do, especially in later years. Though the service is in St Gregory's, EVERYONE is welcome. It's for the whole benefice. We are grateful to the retired clergy who make it possible every week. Please join us!
Churchyard at St Gregory's
The St. Gregory’s Biodiversity Project aims to manage areas within the churchyard for the benefit of wildlife and biodiversity. We are a small group of volunteers who usually work on Wednesday mornings, but other times are possible. We encourage people to adopt a patch, or particular graves, to look after. Perhaps you have expertise to contribute, or a few seeds to spare.
We have uncovered many headstones that have been swallowed by vegetation and there are many more awaiting discovery. We work in liaison with Teignbridge District Council and the PCC.
If you would like to get involved, please contact me, Dave Hutton at email@example.com.
