St John the Evangelist

St John the Evangelist Church at Countisbury is a sister church to St John The Baptist at Lynmouth.  Both churches are part of the Lyn Valley Mission Community Group of Churches.  St John the Evangelist is a beautiful country church and each year we hold a series of evening "Epilogue Services" which are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.  These take place on a Sunday Evening at 8.30pm during the end of June, July and August.

Evening Epilogue

Every Sunday at for 30 mins
St John the Evangelist, Countisbury
St John the Evangelist, Countisbury

These services take place over the summer, each week until the Autumn and last about half an hour with a different invited leader speaking each week, lay or ordained and lead a service on a theme of their own choosing.
Traditionally the Epilogues were followed by a drink at the Blue Ball and may well happen again this year. Everyone is very welcome.

The service took place for the inauguration of Rev'd Miles Welborn as the Rector for the Lyn Valley Mission and Rev'd Katherine Welborn van Santen as assistant curate for the Shirwell Mission Community.
