Around 50 cars attended Torbay’s first Drive-In Church – and organisers believe the numbers will grow as word about the event spreads.

Hosted by Church 180, the Drive-In Church is held at Quay West car park, Paignton, on Sundays. Gates open at 10.30am.

Speaking after the July 5 first service, Rev Paul Hobson said: “It was amazing to see people of all ages, young and old, gathered together with one voice to sing songs of praise.

“The Drive-In Church will be running every Sunday throughout July and all are welcome.

“The morning included an opening prayer and a dancing children’s song for entertaining the little ones.

“We then went on to a time of worship and then I brought an interactive message of joy and hope... many cars were beeping their horns in agreement. We’d like to thank Torbay Council for their support for this event.”
