About

This is a sister website to www.graceandtruthonline.com which seeks to proclaim the Gospel of Christ.

This particular website is most concerned with the gathering of Christ’s church (the ekklesia) in the Devon area. As such it promotes the Gospel of Christ and provides details of meetings held in Devon where that Gospel may be heard.

We live in days when there is a great famine of the hearing of the word of God in our country. Though many churches profess the name of Christ, the reality is that there are very few places where Christ is actually preached in the Gospel.  Yet the preaching of the Gospel is the very means by which God saves sinners, builds and establishes the church, and continues to sustain and feed His people in that church. The truth is, any ‘church’ in which the Gospel fails to be preached is not worthy of the name of Christ.

Of course, many will claim that they do preach the Gospel, but unless the gospel preached accords with that set forth in the scriptures (see The Gospel of God ), unless it be the same message preached by the apostles of old, preached with the same Spirit by those sent of God to proclaim it, then whatever the name given to the message, and whatever the claims made for it, it simply isn’t the Gospel of Christ, and it has no power to save. What is needed in the churches today is the faithful preaching of the Gospel of Christ, as set forth in the scriptures, by preachers sent forth by God to preach His word with boldness: “For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance” 1 Thessalonians 1:5.

Yet despite a great falling away from the truth of the Gospel and from the faithful preaching of Christ in that Gospel in many places today, nevertheless the Lord still does have a people in this day, He still does gather them under the preaching of His word, and He still does send forth preachers to preach that word. Christ continues to build His church! It is our joy to see this happening and our desire to see God’s people gather to hear the preaching of Christ in the Gospel. To this end, this website promotes that Gospel and its proclamation in the county of Devon in which we live, and also further afield.

Since April 1999 we have held meetings in Honiton, Devon to gather under the preaching of the Gospel, usually on audio and video tape. These meetings are normally held every two weeks. If you are in the Devon area and are interested in attending these meetings please do get in touch by email

For further details see also the ‘Honiton Sovereign Grace Meetings’ website, which provides full details of meeting times as well as providing messages online which can be listened to. To understand the importance and value of the public worship of Christ in His church have a listen to The Importance of Public Worship by Henry Mahan.

  1. Hi

    Do you know where I can buy a second hand copy of Basic Bible Doctrine by Don Fortner? It doesn’t seem to be available on Amazon.

  2. Clare,

    I’m not too sure of where you might find 2nd hand copies of that book, but if it helps, I can point you to where you can read the book online. Not the same as having it in print, I know, but very helpful nonetheless. Take a look at: http://www.grace-ebooks.com/ where there are a number of free online books, including all of Don Fortners. Basic Bible Doctrine is at: http://grace-ebooks.com/library/index.php?dir=Don%20Fortner/&file=DF_Basic%20Bible%20Doctrine.pdf

    In Christ,
    Ian

  3. Ian,
