Supporting the community

As a Chapel, we take the work of Missionaries (those who feel called to do God’s work away from home) very seriously.

Our support includes regular prayer evenings with updates on work around the world and in the UK, and the giving of offerings to support those who depend on the Lord to provide.

Below are the missionaries that we have a connection with and a list of dates showing when Offerings are sent to support them in their work.

If you would like further information on Missionary work supported by the chapel please speak to Brian Bibey, Elder of the chapel, or his wife Maureen on 01392 257428, you can also email them at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

What is DUMO?                         

The Devon United Missionary Offering was first taken in 1871. This was  after a group of Christians in North Devon met for special prayer at Bow, to beseech God for the local people, who were suffering malnutrition and illness because of a series of bad harvests. They were also worried about the Franco – Prussian war, which was going on in Europe at the time.

Devon United Missionary Offering Today
At present, DUMO financially supports 17 missionaries and 9 retired missionaries, none of whom have a guaranteed income to support their work or livelihood. The committee of DUMO endeavour to:

  1. Raise funds to support the Devon missionaries,
  2. Increase awareness of their practical and prayer needs,
  3. Make local Christians more aware of missionary work.


This is done by holding a series of annual meetings in Exeter, Braunton and Plymouth at the beginning of October each year, as well as a spring event at in Exmouth.



Devon United Missionary Offering is a registered charity (no. 252562), set up to support those who choose to spread the good news around the world.
