Hello all,

There is a new posting in News and Notices for Children activities and the page includes links to YouTube sites.

It is always worth checking out the Chirruping Page. This can be found under News and Notices.

Services and Events There will be information about the next Sunday Service which will be found under One Off Events.

Thoughts in News and Notices will lead you to Louise's offering for this week.

If you would like to join in an On-line Midweek Communion you will also find details for joining in the News and Notices section including the Order of Service for this week.

There is an on-line Compline every Monday evening as well.

News and Notices has a new addition of Coffee and Chat on a Thursday morning, go and have a look.

On the Menu at the left hand side of the opening page is a page about Zoom which is the Conferencing facility we are using to connect people in for Services and other Events. Please use it to connect.

We, at St Luke's are a broad Church meeting the needs of the people who live here.

"The parish of Topsham: St Margaret is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Exeter’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."
