Wednesday Get-Together – Fresh Bread

Leon returned to the Wednesday Get-Together on 8 Feb with a range of his home-baked bread. Thanks to him for baking and to you for buying: it all went!

Leon hopes to provide this service fortnightly so, unless we say otherwise, the next time will be Wednesday 22 February at the Village Hall 10am – 12noon. See you there?

News: Sunday 29 Jan

Hilary announced that we are now holding a short time of prayer in the Bindon Chapel at 9.30 on Sunday mornings.  This is particularly for those taking part in the service to help them prepare for our worship. Anyone else who would like to come is welcome to pray with us and encourage us.

She also said we are looking for members of the congregation who would like to take a more active part in our services, especially those who might like occasionally to lead the prayer time.  If you would like to help in this way, please let Hilary know.

Hilary reminded us of the Wednesday Get-Together, 10 am – 12 noon every Wednesday in the Village Hall.

She invited us also to come to the Thursday Discipleship Group, 3 – 4 pm every Thursday.  More on this further down the page.

Ann preached her first sermon in her role as our Associate Priest.  She continued our series on “The Names of God” with a talk on Jehovah Rapha, the Lord who Heals, based on Exodus 15: 22-27 and illustrated by Dave’s personal testimony.

The service concluded with an Agape Meal, which we celebrate on the 5th Sunday of any month that has five.

You will find a link to a recording of the service on the right hand side of this screen.

Thursday Discipleship Group: 3-4 pm

This group is meeting weekly and is still reading “The Story” as told in Luke’s Gospel.   The setting is informal, we all take turns to read a passage then the group discusses what it is saying to us.  We open and close in prayer and expect to finish at about 4pm.

When the weather warms up we will revert to the Bindon Chapel but, unless otherwise announced in church, we are currently meeting at 7 Glenwater Close, Axmouth EX12 4BT.

Revd Ann Stuckey

Revd Ann Stuckey

On Sunday 15 January, the Bishop of Crediton came to Axmouth Church to officiate at the licensing of Revd Ann Stuckey as our Associate Priest.  Ann is here to work alongside our Rector, Revd Kate Woolven, in developing the ministry at St Michael’s Church

It was good to have the church full of supporters from both Axmouth and Uplyme Churches as well as members of Ann’s family and her friends.  We saw visitors from Seaton, Beer, Chard and Honiton.

There was a reception afterwards in the Village Hall.

There is a sound recording of the service which you can access here.  Just select the play arrow.  You can navigate through the service by clicking on the waveform or, if you have a touchscreen, by dragging the waveform.
