Church of England Diocese of Exeter East Teignmouth

Opening of Churches for Personal Prayer

19 Jun 2020, 11 a.m.

We are now able to tell you when our churches will be open for personal prayer.

From Wednesday 24 June

•St Michael’s, Teignmouth will be open 10am-2pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays

From Wednesday 1 July

•St Mary’s, Ideford will be open 10am-4pm on Wednesdays and Sundays

•St John’s, Bishopsteignton will be open 10am-12 noon on Wednesdays & 3-5pm on Sundays

Whichever church you normally go to, you are welcome to go in to any of these churches at the days and times shown. You will be able to go in to the building to sit in the quiet and stillness of the church to pray and reflect as you wish. All we ask is that you observe social distancing, follow the safety guidance inside the church and clean your hands before and after entering. If you are shielding or suffering any symptoms of Coronavirus please do not enter but seek medical advice.

Before lockdown, the churches in Ashcombe, Luton and St James in Teignmouth were not normally open and the PCCs there have decided that will continue to be the case. It also continues to be the case that there will be no public church services for the foreseeable future but we will be continuing weekly online services through our website.

We have also created a Quiet Space (with resources to use) in the churchyard at St John’s in Bishopsteignton which is open all day, every day for anyone to use.
