Sixteen Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence

Exeter diocese Mothers’ Union will be campaigning against gender-based violence during the ‘Sixteen Days’ period, which runs from 25th November (International Day against Violence against Women and Girls) till 10th December (International Human Rights Day). This is a global annual campaign which is joined in by very many organisations around the world, including the wider church itself in Devon. Archbishop Justin Welby has described gender-based violence as ‘one of the worst evils in the world’. One in four women are victims, or survivors, of sexual violence and domestic abuse. Mothers’ Union will be holding two Silent Protests against it. The first will be on Saturday 24th November, from 11 am till noon, in the Mill Walk in Bideford and the second will be on Tuesday 27th November, again from 11 am till noon, outside St. Stephens Church, High Street, Exeter. These protests will be seen by thousands of people. Mothers’ Union members and others if they wish will sit silently beneath a long banner describing the campaign, holding placards which make statements about how this crime affects various people. Other volunteers will talk to anyone who wishes to and will give out leaflets. If you would like simply to come and support them, enjoy a coffee or a mince pie, you will be adding your own valuable witness to these important events. Thank you.

The tall granite tower of Plympton St. Mary can be seen from far away, it is a visible sign that Christian worship has been maintained here for centuries. The present building dates from 1311 – when it was part of Plympton Priory, one of the leading monastic houses in the South West of England.  Through the generations, the people of Plympton St. Mary have come to this church to worship God, to rejoice in times of joy and to seek comfort in times of sorrow.

Today we continue to celebrate the good news of Jesus Christ in the worship of the church, day-by-day and week-by-week.

This is a friendly and caring community and we aim to offer a range of services and activities for all ages.

We hope this website will provide useful information for all who use it.
