Welcome to the Parish Church of St Peter, Brampford Speke, EX5 5DR

There has been a church at Brampford Speke for at least 900 years, located on the red sandstone cliff overlooking the River Exe. The church tower was built in the 1400’s and would have been as familiar a landmark to people living 500 years ago as it is today. More information about the church (including interior photographs) is available as an Adobe pdf file,  A great deal of information about the Revd George Cornelius Gorham, vicar of the parish from 1851 to 1857, can be found on Wikipedia

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. The church is open throughout the day and visitors are most welcome.

St Peters week 2017

 

During St Peters week at the end of June 2017, the parishioners of Brampford Speke enjoyed a range of social and worship activities.

The week started on Sunday with the ‘walking’ of the millennium spear from Upton Pyne to Brampford Speke.  This was followed by a game of Rounders and an enjoyable day was finished off with a BBQ.

On Wednesday some of the residents opened their indoor swimming pool to all comers whilst on Thursday there was a well attended coffee morning.

During the week there was a Garden in a Boot Competition for which there were 30 entries, all making a fine display throughout the village for the seven days of this event.

On the final day there was a special service held in the Church to mark the end of the event, at which the bells were rung, the choir sang and the winners of the Boot Competition were presented with their prizes.

Events held during this special week raised £720 for the Church funds.

Photographs from the event (with thanks to John Sanders) can be viewed by clicking here

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

The 14th century church, with its 13th century tower, stands on a small hillside overlooking the village and is dedicated to St Julitta and St Cyr, her young son. The oldest part is the twelfth century tower, with its clock (1711) and inside an eight-bell peal (1733 on). Of the many tributes to parish life, the largest are a fine monument to Sir John Northcott (1632) and a rare Royal Arms of James II.

Welcome to St John the Baptist Church, Netherexe, EX5 4DZ

Join us if you can for our Open Day on Sunday 13th August 2017.  Open Day coincides with the annual horse show set in the surrounding fields. Plenty of parking and entrance is free.  As usual we will be providing teas and refreshments between 11ish and 4ish in the church with proceeds going to church funds.

Our next service is Harvest Festival on Sunday 24th September at 3p.m.  We look forward to seeing you then.

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.

A short leaflet giving more information about the history of the church with internal photographs is available if you click here. The trifold leaflet (pdf format) is designed to be printed double sided on A4 paper.

A booklet containing the full history of the church, a guide to the memorials, a short history of Netherexe, visitor information etc is available if you click here. The booklet is in pdf format and is 12 pages in length.
