For nine centuries, St James' Parish Church has sat at the heart of West Teignmouth.
For nine centuries the people of West Teignmouth have gathered in the church to celebrate their weddings and the births of their children. They have gathered to mourn their loved ones and to remember those who were lost at sea or whose final resting place is in a foreign field. For nine centuries the people of West Teignmouth have gathered in St James’ to share and join together in their worship.
Today, in the 21st century, St James' still stands as a constant reminder of our shared Christian heritage. We gather to share in our worship; we welcome the celebrations of love in marriage and of new birth; we share in the pain of bereavement.
Today, St James’ is a place of stillness and calm in the busyness of life.
Today, St James’ remains a Christian presence at the heart of West Teignmouth, and we welcome you...
In January 2019 many of us chose to become Mothers’ Union Diocesan Members, but we still gather once a month as part of a worldwide fellowship of Christians – united in prayer, worship and service.
Translating into our daily lives this year’s theme: Listen, Observe, Act – in step with God our members have also offered to pray for and support the six local churches and communities connected to Haldon Mission Community.
Mothers’ Union members within this Mission Community also support and endorse the Bishop of Exeter’s Vision:
pray ~ grow ~ serve with joy.
A warm invitation is also extended to you, to join with us and share in the first of these priorities – the call to prayer.
Please see our Prayer Diary for details of the weekly cycle of prayer incorporating the Mothers’ Union vision – of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships.
