What's Christianity About?
This is a place to explore the big questions of life. We don’t assume you believe in God but we hope you’ll take the time to engage with his story.
It can be told as simply as 3, 2, 1…

Have you ever had times when you would have liked to have prayer support for a particular situation?
God promises us in His Word that He hears every word that we pray to Him. Like a good parent, He is waiting, ready, and willing to listen to our worries, concerns and needs.
St Andrew’s Church Buckland Monachorum have a prayer chain which operates for prayer needs. It consists of members of the congregation who are passionate intercessors. Over the years we have seen many wonderful answers to prayer. Prayers are kept in strict confidence and the prayer chain is available to all.
Words of comfort from the Bible:
Our Prayer Chain, as imagined by our Sunday School Class.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”
Please contact Margie Goodfellow if you would like prayer, either directly in person, or email firstname.lastname@example.org . All requests are held in the strictest of confidence, and any e-mails are quickly deleted. Thank you.

Burrator Reservoir, with its scenic beauty and surrounding tors attracts many visitors.
Historically it was Drake’s Leat which channelled water from the moor towards Plymouth to provide for the needs of its residents.
The reservoir is a good representation of the grace of God, an abundant supply from a bountiful God, which is made available to us, through faith in his Son Jesus Christ.
We are then called to become conduits of this grace to refresh the lives of others, passing on all that we have freely received in order to draw others into the love and forgiveness of God.
Each of us is called within the Christian family to offer back all that we are and all that we have to God.
We owe him an unrepayable debt of gratitude for meeting us in his Son, Jesus Christ, and for rewarding us with eternal life when we were utterly undeserving.
Our giving as a church is a summons to respond worthily to the measure and depth of the reservoir of the grace of God.
Our intentions as a church are to give generously to the school and Buckland Chapel. We are in the process of reviewing our mission partners and giving - more information to follow.
