Exmouth's churches have supported the Bible Society for 200 years, raising several thousands of pounds.

An action group was formed by different church congregations in 1820, to help the Society promote Bible reading across the UK.

The Group in Exmouth have collected donations from churches and individuals, also arranging several fundraising events, for the past two hundred years.

The money helped to establish many foreign Bible societies, enabling millions to read the Christian Scriptures in their languages.

It continues this work today in diverse practical ways and relies upon the generosity of Christians to support its work and in turn, support the churches in their mission.

The Exmouth Action Group has organised a summer concert later this month to aid the Bible Society.

The concert, featuring the Salvation Army Band and Songsters, is on Saturday, June 22, at 7.00pm at the Glenorchy United Reformed Church, located on Exeter Rd.

Those wishing to attend can buy their ticket and donate at the door.

During the concert break, refreshments will be available in the church hall.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Society's mission.
