Our monthly visits to Little Oldway Residential Home started when Deacon Susie Fytche was in the Circuit – as outreach. There were just three of us, two from Southfield and Susie to begin with. Susie became unwell so we carried on visiting Little Oldway with just three ladies – we had gained one lady in Susie's place. Since then we really have increased in numbers; we are now up to eight, sometimes nine. As the home has a keyboard we take an organist with us to play for the hymns. We have quite a lot printed out in large print so that the residents can take part, which they do and enjoy singing with us. At the moment we are very lucky to have Deacon Jane Verrall, who leads the service which consists of four hymns, bible reading, prayers and a short address. We also have Holy Communion services, e.g. Christmas, Easter and perhaps a couple during the rest of the year. These services are taken either by our own minister or the Revd Adrian Phippen.
The staff and residents welcome us at Little Oldway and gather as many of the elderly folk to join us as possible. We have made friends with the residents, and feel we are doing a worthwhile service by going there.
Nothing too strenuous! We chat together as we walk along and often find a resting place for a cup of tea or coffee, or maybe lunch!
Any queries, please contact John on 550234
We meet at the Church at 9 a.m.
Langley House Trust
Desperately seeking Susan…and Bob and Eileen…..! It was a delight to meet existing Langley House Trust supporters and to make new friends on our stand at the Methodist Conference in Torquay. The Trust, which provides support and accommodation for ex-offenders wishing to resettle crime-free, is currently looking to recruit more people to join our mailing list and we would like to ask you to prayerfully consider whether you would be willing to do this. A simple form (on the reverse of our “Pass it on” brochure) is available from our Head Office (tel: 01993 899594 or email: email@example.com) and you get a Freepost envelope and a useful pen too, so it won’t take you a moment! Simply tick the boxes to tell us what you’d like to receive. We can send you spare brochures too, for you to pass to friends and colleagues.
By keeping in touch with developments at the Trust and by praying for our work, you will be playing an important part in the process of changing lives and breaking the cycle of re-offending which causes so much damage to individuals and to Society.

We had an excellent ceremony unveiling the plaque - the venue was the Burger King restaurant in Fleet Street, Torquay which is the closest point to where two cottages were converted in 1807 to form The Chapel In The Meadow, the first Methodist "church". The plaque was unveiled by the Deputy Mayor of Torbay (Councillor Heather Buckpit) together with 94 year old Leslie Callard whose brainchild the plaque was.
Some 60 people turned up and we surprised everyone by lustily singing "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling". I doubt whether Burger King patrons had ever experienced the like of it before.
