Welcome to Okehampton Baptist Church

'Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.' 

2 Peter 1:2 (NIV)


A Prayer

Master of the mundane and the miraculous,


As days lengthen and hope rises, so, once again, we stand in need of Your grace.  There are those among us who grieve for loved ones; those who live and work within our communities whose hearts are heavy and who struggle to see the way ahead. 

Come, to bring light to our darkness, order to our confusion, peace to our conflict and hope to our despair.

Come to ordinary people, to give us a new awareness of our place in Your heart;

Come to searching people, that in Your truth we may find answers to our deepest questions, and in Your miracles we may discover questions that never crossed our minds;

Come to wounded people, that we may find healing in the hands of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Come, that we may have the pleasure of Your company and share Your miracles, large and small, with others.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
