Weekdays at the Mint
The Mint has extensive premises opening most weekdays 9.45 a.m. – 9.30 p.m.
Chris Ware, pictured, is the Mint Centre Facilitator who provides a warm welcome to all who come through the doors.
The Reception Desk is staffed 9.45 am to 9.30 pm – most weekdays.
Exeter Food Bank is based on the premises, as is Foodcycle, providing a fee vegetarian meal from spare vegetables from the supermarkets.
Toddlers, young children and parents meet each term time Friday morning at the Mint for activities and fun.
There is also a family cafe on Tuesday mornings. This is Matthew and the church mice.
In addition more than 40 Community Groups are welcomed into the buildings offering a range of activities including Exeter Society for the Blind: yoga, U3A and Forum lectures and Afghan refugees.
On one July Sunday, The Mint held an Outdoor Songs of Praise. Fore Street was closed to traffic as the shopkeepers occasionally come out onto the street to hold a Flea Market. The orchestra (of all ages and grades) played 9 hymns and Rev Steve Santry joined in with his trombone and read parts of Mark’s gospel.
It was wonderful to be part of the local community in the sunshine.
The Mint’s Charity of the year is Westpoint
The Mint Eco Church Team
In January 2021, the Mint Eco Church Team was formed as a response to the importance our Young Church felt about Climate Change and to raise the profile of the issue amongst our wider congregation and community. We registered with Eco Church (An A Rocha UK project) along with many other churches. It encourages its member churches constantly to improve their green credentials and is supported by the Methodist Church. There are various sections which cover Worship and Teaching, Buildings, Community and Global engagement and Lifestyle. A year later we received our Bronze Award. We are continuing to work towards our silver award. The biggest challenges are concerned with property and how best to work towards net zero carbon. We are embarking on a carbon footprint exercise which included asking our congregation how they travelled to church. We continue to ensure that the theme of care for creation is included within our worship and teaching, strengthen the green credentials of our building and activities, work in local and global partnerships with others committed to environmental concerns, and look at our lifestyle choices. We have joined the Exeter Churches Green Network and each month in our monthly magazine we contribute articles. Some of these have been about lifestyle choices and we are now going to begin on some articles on the theme of Knowing creation, Knowing God. We also have a weekly eco based prayer point and have had house group discussions and talks. A member of our Young Church designed our logo. Sue Cordery from the Mint Eco Church Team
