Our work in the Community

Just some of the things we do in the community....

All the Kingsteignton churches are working together to run our monthly Messy Church. This is church for all the family, where making mess is part of what we do as we discover what the Christians faith can mean for us. We start with breakfast followed by creative activities and top it all off with songs and stories.

Entry is free but all children MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Please pray for this event.

Street Pastors is an inter-denominational Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue.

It was pioneered in London in January 2003 by Rev Les Isaac, Director of the Ascension Trust, and has seen some remarkable results, including drops in crime in areas where teams have been working. There are now some 9000 trained volunteers in around 250 teams around the United Kingdom. More information about the Street Pastors initiative.

Newton Abbot Street Pastors have been going for over 3 years. More information about Newton Abbot Street Pastors

Kingsteignton Survey of Social Needs

What are the social needs of Kingsteignton? As information was sparse, we did some research and put together a report. If you require a copy please contact us.

Our responses to our findings included initiating-

Welcome Pack

In cooperation with KCPIG (A community action group), the other local churches and the Town Council, we helped produce a Welcome Pack to help new residents find out what is going on in town and ease their integration into their new surroundings.


SNAILS(SureStart in Newton Abbot International Language School) offered English classes to people from overseas and helped them integrate into British culture. We helped 34 people from 18 countries as far apart as China, Brazil, Russia, Bangladesh and Columbia.
It ran in partnership with the SureStart centre who provide premises for meeting and creche facilities.
KCBC members ran the classes.

Craft and coffee

On Friday mornings for many years we held had an open for all craft time. Where people could join in with a range of craft activities or to just sit and chat and drink tea or coffee.
The last one was on 15th December 2017. Thanks to all those who have been involved in any way over years.
