St John the Baptist Parish Church

Where a warm welcome awaits you


Church Mission Society


Ruth Sayers came to visit us at St John’s on Sunday 9th July to talk about her work in Plymouth, Devon.  For the past 3 years she has been has been serving with Church Mission Society in Barne Barton but prior to that spent many years working in Jordan and the Middle East.

Ruth believes the experience she gained overseas was part of God’s plan to prepare her for Plymouth – which she describes as her hardest mission field so far.  Despite being in picturesque Devon, the area faces real deprivation – high unemployment, low wages and prohibitive property prices.
