Prayers for the repose of the soul of Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

+Robert, Bishop of Exeter

Merciful God, be close to all who mourn,
especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family.
May they know the comfort of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Eternal God, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
founder of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
We remember his vision and imagination,
his interest in young people and his support for them.
Inspire us with the same commitment
to serve friend, neighbour, and stranger alike,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Rest eternal, grant unto him, O Lord
and let light perpetual shine upon him

May he rest in peace,
and rise in glory

Welcome to the website of the Roborough Team Ministry, which is made up by the Parishes of S. Mary the Virgin, Bickleigh and S. Edward, King & Martyr, Shaugh Prior. It also includes the Churches of S. Anne, Glenholt and S. Cecilia, Woolwell.  A warm welcome awaits you at any one of our Churches.

Something for everyone!

It’s not just about keeping ancient buildings going in the face of adversity. Come and join a thriving, living focus of community life within North-East Plymouth. Here, a warm welcome awaits you if you join us and share in God’s Holy Sacraments and the Good News that he promises to each and every one of us.

Come and join us in worship and in fellowship and see what the love of Christ can do for you. Be fed at his Holy Table and enriched by his Holy Word, and discover the difference that the living faith can make to you. Whether you are nine, twenty-nine or ninety-nine, our varied Churches welcome you and can find a sacred space for you to encounter God.

Our life is lived through the sacramental worship of God; through the mass celebrated during the week and on Sundays, through the daily work of worship in the Daily Office of Morning and Evening Prayer and through encounters with God in alternative and meditative worship. Whatever your preference, we can offer a worship experience for you.

If you’ve not been to Church for some time (or indeed, ever) and feel a bit daunted, don’t worry, here is a short guide for new people.

We are an Inclusive collection of Churches which embraces the ministry of women, fights for justice and the inclusion of all people in faith, regardless of sexual orientation, social background or lifestyle, seeking to provide a welcome, just as Christ did for all. If we don’t always get this right, we are always happy to listen and act to ensure we do better, we are all a work in progress!

We actively support the Society of Catholic PriestsWATCH,  One Body One Faith and Inclusive Church

Come and join us!
