HERITAGE FOR LIFE
Consultation Exhibitions
St Mary’s Church, a Grade 1 Listed building, is in urgent need of repair and renovation. The church is on the “Heritage at Risk” register and as such its future is under threat.
The church and its community have drawn up proposals to not only address the urgent repairs required but have a scheme to provide a much need community facility for performing arts as well as continuing as a place of worship.
There are also proposals for improving and making better use of the surrounds to St Mary’s, including the possibility of a new town square.
The public consultation exhibition is being held at St Mary’s Church on 22/23 March and 2/3 March at The Mansion. Please come along and make your views known.

SPECIAL TEAM SERVICE Sunday 31st August 2014 in St Mary’s Church, Totnes
One of the Church Wardens from Berry Pomeroy suggested that we approach the bikers for a Team Service.

The Service was written for the bikers with their choice of hymns, readings, psalm and special blessing. They were very touched by the special service and thought St Mary’s Church was beautiful and the organ playing wonderful – thanks to Ian Curror, who arrived complete with Enfield and bikers’ leathers!!
They commented too on the very warm welcome that they received.
thank you all for your generosity, as the cash offering came to £227.78 which will be used to provide Bikers’ Bibles to all those that they meet and share with along the way
