Please Come..... any of our activities as listed in the Calendar. We would particularly welcome recruits to the BOYS' BRIGADE A new session starts on FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 2. Please see the page under "What's On".

Rev. David Hughes

Our Minister, Rev. David Hughes, has heard the call of God into hospital chaplaincy ministry, and has accepted a post with the NHS in the Gloucester area, working in the mental health field. So it is with great regret that the church has said farewell with our very best wishes to David and Jennie, his wife, with the 3rd September having been his last Sunday. The morning service was also a baptismal service, and there was a presentation at David of bottles of sand and sea water from Paignton, together with a painting of Broadsands beach.

We are very pleased to hear that they have found two Baptist churches in Cheltenham, and wish them all the best.

Victor and Caroline...

are our missionaries from BMS World Mission linked with us in the BMS scheme. They are working in Guinnea, West Africa, but will be back on furlough in October, when we are very pleased to announce that they will be with us on 14th and 15th. Please come along to hear how they have getting on, and to encourage them with your support.


No one who was present will forget the spectacular show put on by Zozulenka, a group of senior school pupils from Ukraine, who  visited us last year. We are very excited at the prospect of a return visit on Saturday October 28th. This is your only opportunity to see and hear them sing and dance in Torbay. Their repertoire consists of traditional Ukrainian songs and dances, together with "western" items. The traditional costumes worn were very colourful and the standard of performance was outstanding and extremely energetic. There is no charge for admission, and this is not a ticketted event, so just turn up for a very enjoyable evening.
