Opening of Churches for Personal Prayer and Reflection

We are now in a position to tell you when church buildings across the Haldon Mission community will be open for personal prayer and reflection.

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

Whether you normally worship in church or not, you are welcome to go into any of these churches at the days and times shown.

You will be able to go into 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 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 for the time being.

There is also a new 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. You are also welcome to use St James churchyard to enjoy a moment of quietness.
