Summer Evening Walks have been greatly enjoyed, aided by the warm, dry weather. The June walk was a local one down to Turf Lock returning along the canal path as the sun was setting. The July walk was to Shaldon for a walk beside the Teign Estuary towards The Ness on a beautiful calm evening as the tide was starting to ebb. In August we have a visit to the Dawlish Warren Fireworks on 16th. Walks are open to all and transport is available. We meet at Dryfield car park in the village at 7 pm.

Goodbye service At the end of July Rev Julian Albrow, our minister, conducted his final service at Exminster as he ceases to be our minister from 31st August 2018. After a Family Service members of the congregation sat down for a Bring and Share lunch with Julian and his wife at which they were thanked for the support they have given us over the past six years.

Julian will continue to have Pastoral Charge at St Thomas, and Crockernwell Methodist Churches, and the development at Matford. He will also continue in his Circuit and District role regarding Safeguarding.
