Torbay Centre of Mission

The Torbay Centre of Mission, launched in September 2016, is in Devon. It is bringing the Good News of Jesus to Paignton, Torquay and people who live in the bay between. Torbay was once a thriving holiday destination, but now it has a very high rate of poverty among children, old people and those of working age. The local churches long to respond, and they have identified people aged 18 to 30 and their families as a priority.

Through a partnership between Exeter Diocese and Church Army, evangelists Jeff Hill and Adrian Prescott will be at the heart of a Centre of Mission that we hope will grow and grow. Jeff has been living and ministering on the Foxhole Estate, Paignton since August 2014. He is serving families practically through community lunches, a toddler group, work in the school, a big termly community event for families and a Messy Church.

Adrian joined the team in September 2016 to live in nearby Torquay and begin new projects that bring help and hope to people who live in the forgotten corners of the town. Between them they long to encourage other local churches in their mission, and gather people around them to share the vision for introducing Jesus to people who do not yet know how very much God loves them.
