East Devon Arts Festival 14th to 18th May 2019

We are looking forward to May when we will welcome exhibitors and visitors to our annual Arts Festival here in Thorverton. We will see many old friends and, we hope, some new ones.

Each year there are surprises and fresh ideas. Our beautiful old church undergoes its yearly metamorphosis to become an art gallery. Hundreds of paintings and a great variety of craft work such as jewellery, pottery, decorated lampshades, flower pots, boxes, trays, glass work, door stops, bags, lavender products, clocks, mirrors, clothes, scarves, aprons, turned wood, wooden and soft toys, patchwork, even furniture- something for everyone! Many visitors go away with something to hang on their wall, a beautifully made piece of craft, ornamental or practical, for themselves or a gift. It’s amazing how inventive people can be and what they can make things out of! The range, value and quality of greetings cards for all occasions are always appreciated. And while you browse you can enjoy the beautiful flower arrangements which decorate the church and buy a draw ticket in hope of winning a magnificent cake.

The event is a fantastic community effort. Thorvertonians and people from further afield work extremely hard but really enjoy the week and the efforts needed before and after; all to raise funds to help with the running costs of Thorverton Church.

And if you find yourself in need of some refreshment and a sit down then we’ve thought of that too. The vestry is transformed into a café with refreshments served all day. All of the money raised by the refreshments goes to church funds.

We look forward to seeing you. Please bear in mind that the church does not benefit from modern communication and therefore we can only accept cash or cheque for your purchases.

Baptisms

hat1

The Netherexe Mission Community offers support, advice and help to all those who wish to be baptised (christened). Many people grow up in the Church because they have been baptised as babies and brought up in a Christian family. That is not always the case. Increasing numbers of older people - from teenagers to great grandparents - are making their own decision to join the Church. If you would like your child / children to be baptised, great! If you want to raise your children in the Christian faith and feel comfortable making the baptismal promises on their behalf, then we would love to prepare you and your family for this big step.

Thanksgiving services
If in good conscience you don’t feel you can make the promises in the baptism service for your child, don’t worry. We can look at having a Thanksgiving Service instead.

Who can be baptised?  

Anyone who wants to be involved with Jesus Christ and with the local church.

If you live within or have a strong connection to any of the churches in the Nextherexe Parishes, the Clergy and baptism team are here to help. Baptism usually takes place as part of a main service. If you are not linked with us in any way but would still like to be baptised or to have a child baptised, please attend church first, then ask us about baptism.

Can my child be baptised?  

Yes, every member of the family can belong to the Christian church.

The baptism service involves saying aloud statements of belief and promises on behalf of your child. If you are uncertain about this, it would be better to delay baptism and have a thanksgiving service which gives thanks to God for your child but involves no promises on the parent’s part.

We hope to see families who have had their child baptised attending church services as often as possible.

So what next?

Please make contact with a member of our baptism team or a member of the clergy. One of our team will arrange to visit you and explain about baptism, and the baptism service. If you are coming to church for the first time, introduce yourself to the vicar or the congregation leader and tell them you are interested in baptism. There is no charge for a service of baptism, although a collection is taken at the service.
