Welcome to St Michael's Church, Otterton, Devon
The Raleigh Mission Community is the Church of England community serving the people of Budleigh Salterton, East Budleigh and Otterton, and the surrounding hamlets in our corner of East Devon.
Our vision is ‘To know and worship God, to show his love by reaching out into the community, and welcoming all into his church.'
We have recently launched an appeal to safeguard the future of our beautiful church - see below.
Di uses power of pen to help SPACE
Introspection - a collection of Poems, prayers and psalms, has been published by Di Bagshawe, of Fore Street, to help Otterton’s SPACE (St Michael’s Parish and Community Endeavour) appeal.
Di, who already has work published in several anthologies and the religious magazine Triumph Herald, moved to Budleigh three years ago when one of her three daughters was living in the town and is a member of the town’s film club the Otter Valley Association and an active congregation member at St Peter’s Church.
She said: “I find Otterton church fascinating, its history and the French names in the graveyard intrigue me.
It’s wonderful to able to help, in some way, to save it.”
Priced £4.50, Introspection is on sale at The Fairlynch Museum, East Budleigh Community Shop and Otterton Community Shop.
