This is a virtual church service that was put together by Dawlish Christian Fellowship, a church in South Devon. When our church buildings are open again, we would love it if you could come and visit us in person. Please see our “Services” page for details.
This should have been our Church weekend away at Heatree organised by our youth. Don’t worry, it hasn’t been cancelled, just postponed until October. They have, at short notice, put this prayer and praise service together for us. Thank you to all the young people at Dawlish Christian Fellowship.
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”1 Timothy 4: 12
Would you like to come to Heatree in October?
There are still spaces. The event is on our ‘What’s On’ page. If you would like to book a place, please download the booking form below, and send it to the DCF office. The office post is not checked very often at the moment, so please don’t send any money yet, just the form. If you could also send an email to let us know you’re interested, that would help the young people with their planning.

Words of Encouragement and Messages
Here is a prayer for all of those who are self-isolating. Sue felt that God had put it on her heart, and was happy for it to be shared:
Oh Lord as we shut out the virus and close our doors to fear will you please stop us from becoming self absorbed in our self isolation. Merciful God change our focus from what is going on around us, to you. May we see with your vision and perspective and may we be able to reach out even though we are locked in! For we so need to give as well as receive, lest we become just a blocked vessel, no longer available for you to use, even if it’s in the smallest detail of our day. Amen.
Sandra wanted to share a video of children in a school assembly singing to the Lord.
Here’s a ‘good news’ story from Liz. Her sister-in-law Annette, has a sister called Karen. They started a Facebook group called ‘Joining Together’ after her husband Phil, and her daughter Lindsey made cardboard figures and put them on the fence at the bottom of their road. It made the local news. Watch from 6.06 mins…
Do you have any stories of what God has done recently that you would like to share? It could be a short video or something written. Maybe you have a prayer request. We could include some of these in next week’s service. Please email these to the church office: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would normally have a collection during our service. If you would like to give, you can still do so on-line. Please see our giving page.
