Pentecost Worship at Axmouth

 

We gathered for worship to mark the fulfilment of Jesus’ promise to send the Holy Spirit after he had ascended into heaven.

Elisabeth led our worship, Jeannie read the passage John 15:26-27, 16:4-15 and Iain spoke on it.  Derek then led the intercessions and Harry accompanied our worship on the organ.

Sunday 13 May

Today we marked the period between the Ascension of Jesus and the promised coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, during which the disciples spent the time in prayer.

Hildegard read and Roger spoke on Jesus’ final prayer for his disciples before the Crucifixion, as recorded in John 17:6-19

Derek led the intercessions while Terry led the service and presided at Holy Communion.

The church was still beautifully decorated with flowers from Sue and Roger’s wedding yesterday and we were delighted that the happy couple were able to join us for our worship before embarking on honeymoon.

Bring your pets – and a picnic – to Axmouth Church Green

Rogation Sunday: 6 May

May 6 is Rogation Sunday, the day when the Church offers prayer for God’s blessings on the fruits of the earth and the work of those who produce our food. Just as Harvest Festival marks the end of the growing season, so Rogation marks the beginning.

So there will be no morning service in church. Instead we’ll be gathering at 3pm in the appropriate setting of Higher Bruckland Farm. And as well as our service of worship there will be the encouragement of tea, scones, cream, jam and cakes! So do come along and do bring children 🙂

Agape Meal: Sunday 29th April

We gathered this morning in a colder than usual church — the heating boiler had failed temporarily — and our worship included an Agape Meal, symbolic of what the early Christians would share when gathering together as members of the one family of Christ.

Terry Barratt talks about SEAN with live South American music

Terry Barratt has been involved in SEAN for some 50 years.  His parents, who worshipped at Axmouth, started it and Terry has seen SEAN grow to a worldwide ministry, training, equipping and empowering ordinary people to start churches and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.  In church this morning he charted the growth of SEAN from its humble beginnings to the present where he is finally about to hand over to a new Director.

Accompanied by sister Rosemary on the harp, he also gave us a flavour of worship in a South American church.
