Family Walking Group

Goodrington Methodist Church Family Walking Group invites you to join them to enjoy the fellowship and the exercise.  All ages are welcome.

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: info@langleyhousetrust.org) 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.

For more information about the work of the Langley House Trust please visit www.langleyhousetrust.org.

Torbay Civic Society 'Blue Plaque'

As a result of a joint initiative between the Torbay Circuit and the Torbay Civic Society, a plaque was unveiled on Thursday 18 October 2001 to commemorate the beginnings of Methodism in Torquay. 

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.

We were given splendid coverage by BBC Radio Devon by our local evening newspaper the Herald Express.

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.
