Sunday Worship

10am Morning Worship is contemporary, relevant and fun. Children are always welcome and we run Junior Church for over 3s nearly every week.

6pm Evening Worship is quiet, contemplative and seasonal. We draw on the rich tapestry of Christian liturgy and worship.

Raising Funds for Disabled Toilet facilities at Uplyme Church

 
Silent AuctionAs many of you will be aware the church is open from dawn until dusk every day of the year and is used by the community and the primary school throughout the week. It is also visited by many tourists who either have former connections or are walking one of the local footpaths.

Sadly the church is still without a disabled toilet facility. Indeed there is just one aged tiny unisex toilet at the back of the church.

So we are making a determined effort to try and raise sufficient funds to improve and extend the toilet facilities which we know will be much appreciated by the local community, visitors and church members.

One aspect of the fund raising will be a silent auction in late September. We would be most grateful if there is anything you could offer for the auction (either a service or an item).  Examples of the list so far include tickets for local attractions, baby-sitting, 3 course home cooked meal for 4, a flower arrangement, cut and blow dry, 2 dozen speciality cup-cakes, compost, a dress made and fitted, piano or singing lesson, fishing session and more! Local businesses such as Travis Perkins, Making Waves, Uplyme Garage, Amid Giants and Idols, Black Dog Tearooms, Seaton Window Cleaners, Liberty and Family etc have  already offered support   No item or service would be too small especially if it’s something often needed and no treat would be too big!  Items will need to be in new or nearly new condition and transportable to Uplyme Church.  If not sold they will need to be collected.

Please put your thinking caps on, especially as many of you will have some great ideas.

Offers of items, services to either Carol Linsley  - 442358 or carol.linsley1@googlemail.com

Or Anne and David Hardman- 444799 or anne.uplyme@gmail.com.

Please look out for further details in the next issue of the Parish magazine.

The concert,”Songs for a Summer’s Evening”, in the beautifully refurbished Uplyme Church, promises to be a very special evening. It is being held at 7:30pm on Saturday 7th June.

Local girl, Chloe Stratta, together with two other exciting young singers from Manchester, is presenting an evening of songs for a summer evening in Uplyme Church on Saturday 7th June at 7.30pm. Their repertoire will include both oratorio and operatic arias, and art song, including works by Mozart, Handel, Fauré, Schubert, and much more.

Chloe – an ex-Colyton Grammar School pupil – grew up in Lyme Regis,   and graduated with a first class honours degree in music from  Manchester University last year. In Manchester, she studied as a soprano under Catherine Mikic, and  she is now working with Ryland Davies and Debbie Rees in London, and Julie De’ath Lancaster in Devon. She is hoping to pursue a classical singing career.  Whilst at University,  she toured in Milan and Menaggio, Italy with the University’s prestigious chamber choir, Ad Solem, and took part in numerous concerts. In her final year, she took the lead role of Venus in the university music society’s performance of John Blow’s ‘Venus and Adonis’, and also performed with the Halle choir.  Last year, she was the soprano soloist for the Lyme Bay Chorale’s performance of Haydn’s Creation  Mass, and this year for Sidmouth Choral Society’s  performance of  Haydn’s “Mass  In the Time of War”, and  for a Fauré Reqiuem in Exeter Cathedral.  She is currently the Musical Director of the Uplyme Gospel Choir and  is a young leader for  B Sharp – the Lyme Regis youth music charity.  In 2012 she spent four months studying at Melbourne Conservatorium, Australia.At the concert on 7th June Chloe will be supported by two other exciting young singers from Manchester –  Rhiannon Doogan(mezzo soprano) and James Berry (baritone).  Rhiannon graduated with Chloe from Manchester University in 2013, having also studied under Catherine Mikic.  James is currently a student at the Royal Northern College of Music. 

Tickets available on the door will cost £10 but there will be no charge for children.
