Next Sunday 10th December at 10.00am Rev Richard Ward-Smith will be leading our Family Holy Communion Service. See you there!

Thank you for visiting our website. St Olaf's Parish Church near Bude, in the centre of Poughill, EX23 9ER. There is some roadside parking outside the church, and down Northcott Mouth Road (below the church on Bude's side) a couple of hundred yards on the right is a free car park.

Sunday morning services on are at 10.00 and we have Sunday Club for children in our Church Hall across the road from the church. We are always pleased to welcome visitors, both adults and children, and parents are very welcome to stay with any little ones who might find it hard to settle.

We love meeting new people, so please stay on after the service to chat over coffee. Anyone new to the area will discover we are a friendly group of people.

We are a church that is following Jesus, working to make Him known to others through our life and work. It's what the church was made for, and we try to share the gospel (the good news about Jesus) through everything we say and do. It's why we meet together, pray together, worship together and serve together - we are always trying to share the story of Jesus with others, those who live in our community and those who visit us. We're not perfect, but we are enjoying the journey together.   We look forward to meeting you.

SAFEGUARDING

Our parish Church in Poughill is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Truro’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO Dr Grace Chia 07816 674986, or Sarah Acraman, Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, 01872 274351, out of hours or after 5pm and weekends: 01208 251300. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact Local Authority Children’s Social Care: 0300 123 1116 or Local Authority Adult’s Social Care: 0300 1234131.

We have fully accepted and endorsed the National Safeguarding Standards, which can be found here.

Come And Meet Each Other (CAMEO) is open to folk of all ages, with or without a connection to St Olaf's Church.  We meet for a hot lunch (with plenty of choices) at 1 o'clock in the Church Hall at Poughill, then during the afternoon we maybe have a speaker, or games, or a film, or a quiz, or a chat.   Then we enjoy tea and cake before going home.

The Church Hall is almost opposite the church in the centre of the village (EX23 9ER).   There is some parking on the roadside, but if you are able to walk, there is plenty of space in the free car park just down Northcott Mouth Road.

If you do not have transport, we will do our best to offer you a lift. Please contact Tim on 01288 488503. 

If you'd like to meet someone who usually comes along before you give it a try, we'll try and sort that too. Please email us at timsymonds@aol.com
