Stoke Canon Parish Church

stosfw

Welcome to the Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene, Stoke Canon, EX4 5AS 

 

The church of Stoke Canon was probably one of the Domesday churches of Devon. The church of St Mary Magdalene, which was rebuilt in the late1830’s (with the exception of the 15th century tower), is located in the centre of the village a few miles North of Exeter on the A396 Tiverton road.   It is a Grade 1 listed building which contains a celebrated Norman Font, one of the oldest in Devon.

As part of the Netherexe Mission Community we are committed to maintaining a worshipping, witnessing community in our parish and to making the gospel known to people of all ages and backgrounds.    In our local church life we seek to be welcoming and accessible for all generations; to offer relevant and appropriate worship and study opportunities; and to serve other people by building community and meeting identified needs.

More information about the history of the church (including interior photographs and a note about the Boone family connection) is available as an Adobe pdf file. Please click here

Our next service will be Harvest Festival on Sunday 23rd September 2018 at 3.00pm followed by light refreshments.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Our candlelight Carol Service will be on Monday the 17th December 2018 at 7p.m.  Transport across the field will be available.  Please wear suitable footwear e.g.boots and warm clothing.

 

No fantastic stained glass windows.  No magnificent screens.  No electricity, gas or water. Just a simple stone church set in the midst of fields close to the banks of the River Exe.  Lit by candles, heated by the warmth of its congregation.

The footpaths and bridleways which converge on it are a testimony to its importance to the generations who have worshipped here. An Anglo-Saxon church is mentioned in the Doomsday Book although the present building is late C15th.  It was renovated around 1890. More recent renovation work on the church was completed in 2008.

Cadbury Parish Church

cadsfw

Welcome to the Parish Church of St Michael & all Angels, Cadbury, EX5 5LA

 

 

Cadbury Church is in the centre of this rural hamlet whose population is about 100. The building, constructed from local stone, dates from the 15th century  - there is a medieval stained glass window and a Norman font – although there have been mid19th century additions and renovations. During the last 30 years restoration to the roof, tower and west window has been carried out. Now we are in the early stages of improving the heating and lighting and creating facilities for hospitality after services.

We have a recently formed choir which enjoys singing at special services (such as baptisms, or festivals). Bell ringing is also popular and great efforts are being made to fund raise for bell restoration, and the other improvements.

The church is the spiritual hub and there is a good positive relationship between it and the community. Recently lay involvement has increased and with it, more shared responsibility and active interest in pastoral care; more family orientated services and varied worship styles. We benefit from and appreciate the support derived from being part of the Netherexe community of churches and feel that this is an exciting time for Cadbury. Currently, we have 3 services a month including one Holy Communion. Our monthly lay led services are short, modest and meaningful with a gradual increase in the number of people actively involved.
