Whiddon Valley Evangelical Church, Stoat Park, Barnstaple, Devon, EX32 8PT

Welcome to our web pages

THE CHURCH IS OPEN FOR OUR SUNDAY SERVICES

Please read the summary of the changes in practice that are necessary to reduce as much as possible the risk of spreading the Coronavirus during services.

Please also note that from 8th August 2020 members of the public are required by law to wear a face covering in church. The government website puts it like this, “You are expected to wear a face covering immediately before entering … and must keep it on until you leave”. Please see the government website for exemptions to the wearing of face coverings.

We also ask any visitor planning to attend worship with us to first phone Pastor to announce your intention. This is primarily to ensure that there is enough space in the church for you because spaces are much more limited than previously. Telephone number 01271 269213

Our services are being uploaded to YouTube as soon as possible following the end of each service so if you are unable to join with us in person please follow this link to our Whiddon Valley Evangelical Church YouTube channel. We are planning to live stream the services as aoon as possible.

In these pages you are able to find out what we believe about God & the Bible. Also available are recordings of sermons that have been preached in our church on Sundays. There are also Bible studies that have been given at the Tuesday evening meetings.

If you are short of time at the moment please read this Psalm before you go.

Psalm 40
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.
13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
