Axmouth Church

Axmouth Church seeks to be a blessing to the village of Axmouth and have an impact in the wider world. We aim to do this through four areas - the church building, pastoral care, the Parish News and through just giving.

Pets Service held on Sunday afternoon 7th August

Since we had the marquee up for the previous night’s Music on the Green, we tried an innovation, moving our regular morning service to 3pm in the afternoon and inviting people to bring their pets.  Roger Grose spoke and played the piano, while Kate Woolven led the service and blessed the pets.

Afterwards, the Friends of Axmouth Church laid on cream teas for all.

Shall we do it again next year?

Choral Evening in the Church on 22 April

Come and enjoy an hour of music followed by refreshments. It’s free!

Who? The Spirit II Spirit Choir led by Andy Hague

What? A sumptuous concert! “Interspersing the music will be poems and other readings. It is a bit like a festival of nine lessons and carols but on the theme of love,” says Andy. Afterwards the choir will serve a simple ‘feast’ of homemade bread and wine.

When? Friday 22 April at 7.30 pm

Where? St Michael’s Church, Church Street, Axmouth

Why? It is free, but an offering will be taken and split between a charity supporting refugees and the church itself, which needs refurbishment to improve its usefulness to the whole of the local community.

All we need is YOU!
