Welcome to the Torridge Methodist Circuit website. On October 9th at Lake Chapel the Torridge Circuit celebrated the Bi-Centenary of the birth of the Bible Christian movement at Lake Farmhouse, Shebbear.
On this website you can find something about the origins of the Shebbear Circuit and many testimonies to show that sparks of revival in Cornwall crossed the Tamar and are crossing the Tamar again!
Together, as the new, larger, Torridge Circuit, we are seeking to build confidently on the work that God is already doing amongst us.
We hope there will be much on this website to interest, challenge and inspire:-
- particularly people with questions about the Christian faith, or the Methodist heritage;
- our members, as they get to know and work with each other (check the list of Churches/Chapels);
- people from other traditions and denominations, or none, who are sharing the Christian journey – a life of love in action and a quest for justice for the poor, the weak, the vulnerable – a “magnificent obsession” as Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of Billy Graham, might describe it. (Magnificent Obsession is the title of her new book!)
On this website you can discover details about our Ministers, our Circuit Stewards, our Churches/Chapels and find a copy of the latest quarterly Preaching Plan. The “About us” page indicates the range of material on this website, as do the tabs “Christians”, “Mission & Ministries“, “Our Heritage”, and “Our Future”, across the top bar. Local events will be found in the current Circuit Newsletter.
Combe Martin Methodists have recently put themselves on line. If churches in Torridge Circuit are thinking about doing the same why not look at their website and see if it inspires you.
If you have ideas or photos for improving the website these would be welcomed through the Contact Us page.
