Welcome to Torridge Methodist Circuit website

We are a group of 15 Methodist Chapels. As the River Torridge runs through the beautiful countryside so we believe the Love of God flows through our lives and the lives of the Chapels. We are here to worship God and to serve this beautiful part of God’s world.

There is plenty to explore in this glorious part of Devon, both physically, and spiritually.

One of our Chapels is at the delightful village of Clovelly, where you can get a flavour of what we are about. The quietness of the Chapel gives a wonderful opportunity to just stop and reflect; and maybe leave a prayer or a thought.

In the South of our circuit we celebrate the rich heritage of the early Bible Christian Movement, one of the many branches of the Methodist family.

Bideford, Northam and Torrington are situated in, and serve, towns; while our village chapels pay such a vital role in their communities, with the unique dimension to life they bring.

We hope that this website will serve as an introduction to us; but we would really like to meet you. You will find details of our worship times and other activities. Please join us, you will be made most welcome.

We are committed to deepening our faith through worship and service as we celebrate the love that God in Christ Jesus shows to each and every one of us.

With every blessing

Revd Rob Blackhall
