Proudly Supporting our Parish Churches

Who are we?

The Otter Vale Mission Community is an organisation that works to support and bring together of all C of E churches based in the Otter Valley area. We encourage each church in growing in prayer, making new disciples, and serving people with joy in order to reflect Bishop Robert’s vision for the Church of England in Devon. Our organisation is served by a team of clergy and readers who together share overall responsibility for ministry throughout the Mission Community. Each parish has a designated parish priest.
 

our aims

  • Resourcing our church schools

  • Holding annual joint events for worship and teaching

  • Ensuring leaders, lay and ordained, are supported by meeting together regularly

  • Serving the local churches through administration and training

  • Supporting each other’s events

  • Sharing resources, expertise and gifts
