An informal summer service of celebration that has been held in Chudleigh for many years.
Originally tied in with the Carnival, the service is organised by members of the Baptist and Parish Church
congregations. With leaders and musicians from both churches, we seek to give thanks to God for our

Grants are being made to the following organisations:
