Welcome to the website of the Roborough Team Ministry, which is made up by the Parishes of S. Mary the Virgin, Bickleigh and S. Edward, King & Martyr, Shaugh Prior. It also includes the Churches of S. Anne, Glenholt and S. Cecilia, Woolwell. A warm welcome awaits you at any one of our Churches.
Something for everyone!
It’s not just about keeping ancient buildings going in the face of adversity. Come and join a thriving, living focus of community life within North-East Plymouth. Here, a warm welcome awaits you if you join us and share in God’s Holy Sacraments and the Good News that he promises to each and every one of us.
Come and join us in worship and in fellowship and see what the love of Christ can do for you. Be fed at his Holy Table and enriched by his Holy Word, and discover the difference that the living faith can make to you. Whether you are nine, twenty-nine or ninety-nine, our varied Churches welcome you and can find a sacred space for you to encounter God.
Our life is lived through the sacramental worship of God; through the mass celebrated during the week and on Sundays, through the daily work of worship in the Daily Office of Morning and Evening Prayer and through encounters with God in alternative and meditative worship. Whatever your preference, we can offer a worship experience for you.
If you’ve not been to Church for some time (or indeed, ever) and feel a bit daunted, don’t worry, here is a short guide for new people.
We are an Inclusive collection of Churches which embraces the ministry of women, fights for justice and the inclusion of all people in faith, regardless of sexual orientation, social background or lifestyle, seeking to provide a welcome, just as Christ did for all.
Come and join us!

- Biblical Literalism – it’s not biblical
- Did Jesus’ family not understand him? There seems no reference to his Mother Mary and other family members
- Why does Jesus say ‘Son your sins are forgiven’ – is he hinting that he was sent to forgive us our sins?
- Question: Why does the crucifixion and resurection of Jesus mean that our sins are forgiven – could God not have done that anyway without this happening?
