Sidmouth Parish Church
At, Sidmouth Parish Church on the Heritage Coast of East Devon, we welcome many visitors to the town as well as serving the local community in regular worship and special civic occasions. We are part of the Sid Valley Mission Community where different traditions work together in mission and ministry. The building largely dates from 1860, but retains a 15th century tower, featuring the beautiful west window given by Queen Victoria as a memorial to her father. Recent excavations to put in a new floor revealed the foundations of an earlier 12th century church. The aim of our Mission Community is to know Christ and make him known. Do come and join us for worship. For more information follow the link to our website https://www.sidvalley.org.uk/sidmouthparishchurch.htm
The parish of Sidmouth 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.

Message from the Team Rector Rev David Caporn
What seemed a few weeks ago as sudden and novel is now clearly going to become our normal mode of operation for some time. As I write I am aware that over the course of this lockdown we will encounter a variety of emotions and feelings which may be different at different times. Some may be welcoming the solitude that the disruption to normal routine brings whilst for some the pain of separation from loved ones is particularly painful and may mean missing particular events and milestones. I am also aware of some desiring some peace and quiet as they juggle work responsibilities whilst trying to school and entertain children.
As we continue to adjust to the new normal, the wardens and particularly the pastoral teams in our various churches have been working hard behind the scenes to enable ministry to continue through preparing online services, distributing worship material and news sheets, and keeping in contact with folk by phone as well as responding to various practical needs. It has also been a great joy to hear stories of people supporting friends and neighbours, embodying the fact that the church really is the people such that life as church continues even though the buildings may be closed.
For those with access to the internet do please look at the websites www.sidvalley.org.uk and www.allsaintssidmouth.org.uk where there is an increasing wealth of information including access to Sunday worship materials that have been prepared by the teams at Sidmouth Parish Church and All Saints’. A number of people have commented what a joy it has been to hear familiar voices!
The Church of England has prepared some helpful materials which can be used in support of individual prayer and we are distributing these electronically and in print form for those without access to the internet and I commend them to you.
Finally I’d like to encourage you to join the wave of prayer nationally at 7pm on a Sunday evening. This can of course be done individually but our curate Nigel Candelent will also be leading this over the phone each week.
St Giles and St Peter
