Messy Church

Our aim in Moretonhampstead is to provide Christian hospitality to local families who may not have the chance to experience sitting down and having fun within a church context. And it is fun! We usually meet on the first Tuesday of each month during school term time at 3.30pm in the Parish Hall in Moretonhampstead. Each child must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Our families are greeted with hot drinks or squash and usually fruit and home-made biscuits. Each month we have a different bible theme and we start our afternoon with a story, short prayers and a chorus relating to that theme. Then we go to the Craft Room and have a choice of about 4 different crafts which all relate to our theme of that day. Each craft is supervised by an adult and they can definitely be ‘messy’ The children love to paint, cut out, dress up and make things to take home. We love it when the Mums and Dads ……and Grandmas…… join in!

At 5pm, we return to the main hall and sit down to a hot meal and eat those ‘naughty but nice’ home made cakes! We leave for home at around 5.30pm.

And it’s all FREE!

Two Valleys Community Energy

We are the product of two Dartmoor communities coming together to develop a clean energy scheme for the benefit of our communities. Moretonhampstead in the Wray Valley, and North Bovey, have teamed up with Christow in the Teign Valley. We have held public meetings within our communities to gain their support from the outset. Members have received extensive training in all the major aspects of running a Community Energy Scheme and we are now in the process of developing a sound environmental and economic proposal that will be put to our communities at further public meetings. Only if we gain their support will we then proceed to fund raise through a share offer and bring the whole plan to fruition. Surplus profits from the scheme will go to benefit our respective communities. For more information please get in contact.
