Hope Chapel is a beautifully looked after church, complete with pipe
organ and is well supported by the village. You will be made very
welcome at our Sunday services and are welcome to join us for
refreshments afterwards.We have flexible seating and project hymns on a
screen which makes it easier for elderly and disabled people to join in
(including learning disabled). Regular Bible Studies with a chance to
meet our Minister are welcomed by some in the community as well as our
Occasionally we enjoy joining the congregation at Sheepwash Methodist Chapel for worship (where there are children) or being part of an even larger congregation when four local chapels meet about once a quarter in one of the chapels in the group. Also sometimes united services are arranged with St.Mary's Church, particularly in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity; at Pentecost and for Remembrance Sunday. There are two local Saturday Churches open to anyone but aimed at making families and children feel welcome.
On Monday afternoons nearly every week we host 'Bookworms' in the schoolroom. It is a paperback library for those that want it and a drop-in centre for anyone that wants company, with comfortable chairs and tables to sit around. There are many resources available, including a large number of Christian books.
Once a month on the first Friday, a popular Cake and Coffee event raises funds for the Chapel and for various charities. For both Bookworms and Cake and Coffee we value help from members of the community of Black Torrington.
The Church and Chapel work together with the community to arrange an informal monthly lunch called 'Time Out', open to anyone, and six luncheons a year for the retired. Both are in the modern village hall, with a newly enlarged carpark. The Chapel and Church are also used as collection points for local Food Banks.
