Welcome to the Hartland Coast Mission Community website. We are a team made up of individual parishes each with its own worshipping community, together seeking to serve the people who live, work and visit here. Each is a lively community with much going on, and as our web site develops we hope you will find all the details of what is currently on offer.
We normally have a whole variety of worship services within the team (but see below for changes due to Covid-19). We aim to provide a worship menu with something to suit everyone, with many parishes trying new forms of informal worship alongside other more traditional services. For further details please check the individual parish pages.
We have a ministry of welcome to all, if you come and find a welcome please tell your friends, if you come and don’t find a welcome please tell us!
You will find the latest copy of the 'Hartbeat' magazine on the News page via the menu at the top of this page. The latest copy, which has just been published, is number 4-5. A sub-menu item on the News page provides a link to the Readings for the nearest Sunday.
Here is the clickable link to the advice from the Diocese and the Church of England to minimise the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) in the forthcoming months:
Unfortunately, following current firm 'advice' from the authorities, we have been obliged to shut and lock all the churches in the Community, and some other places such as the Church Rooms in Hartland. Be assured that the work of the Churches continues for you all, as you can see from these pages. The doors to all of the churches will be opened as soon as we are allowed. You can see the 'Services during virus restrictions' item in the menu at the head of this page which gives details of the arrangements in the meantime. You will see there in particular a poster for the PRAYERLINE to help you spiritually with these difficult times.
Andrew Macwilliam has provided a helpful reflection for the 4th Sunday in the Trinity season (5th July)
"... means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture in all our churches. In order to achieve this, we need to do a lot of hard work. We will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults. We will work to prevent abuse from occurring. We will seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks."
