I cannot believe how generous the box holders were this year, the total sum collected was £1,045 which is the most we have ever received. It was a combined effort between the three parishes of Feniton Payhembury and Escot.

Another year has passed and the customary reminder is going out to ask those of you who have a Children's Society gift box to return the Feniton boxes to Sheila Lanning at 3 Church Lane and the Payhembury boxes to Becky Gammon by the last week of October.

(That gives Sheila time during November to count the money and return the boxes to you before the Opoeration Christmas Child gift boxes need to be made up and despatched in the early part of November.)

Thank you

Sheila Lanning

This coffee morning will take place in St Andrew's Church, Feniton from 1030 to 1230 on Saturday 21st October

Operation Christmas Child is a non-profit, Christian organisation which sends Christmas gift boxes around the world to children affected by war, poverty, natural

At the Samaritan's Purse Coffee Morning in November £205 was raised to help send the shoeboxes to their recipients. Here are some photos of the boxes and the contents before they were packed.

...and on their way.....


Dear all,

In response to the devastating cyclone which has hit many pacific countries including Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, the Melanesian Mission has today launched a fundraising campaign. We have not been able to make contact with the Anglican Church in Vanuatu yet, but once we do, we want to be able to support those affected as soon as we can.

You can support the people of Vanuatu in the following ways:

Please pray and ask your churches to pray


Almighty God,

in whom we live and move and have our being,

cradle in your loving arms the peoples of Vanuatu and their neighbours affected by Cyclone Pam:

comfort the bereaved,

strengthen the distressed and uphold those reaching out across oceans in support at this time of distress;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Make a donation in one of the following ways.

Send a cheque made payable to The Melanesian Mission and post to 21 The Burlands, Feniton, Honiton, EX14 3UN. Please write on the back of the cheque Vanuatu Cyclone Appeal.

Make an online transfer with the reference Vanuatu Cyclone.
