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.
We at Axmouth Church invite you to our Annual Carol Service with music from the combined choirs of Axmouth and Uplyme, surrounded by beautifully decorated Christmas trees. Come, sing and prepare your heart for Christmas!
This is the showpiece event in our Christmas Tree Festival.
See below for further details.
Axmouth Church is open 11am to 6pm every day until 23 December with a magnificent display of Christmas Trees. These have all been donated and decorated by the community. Please come in and admire the creative beauty on show.
There are also some events taking place, as shown in the poster
Our annual Service of Remembrance at 10am on Sunday 13 November.
Followed by a wreath-laying ceremony, reading of the Roll of Honour, the Last Post and 2 Minutes Silence at the Axmouth War Memorial.
Our Harvest Festival Service on Sunday 11th October at the later time of 11 o’clock, and followed by a free lunch at 1230 in the Village Hall. No such thing as a free lunch? OK, you do need a ticket. But they are free!
MEGA BREAKFAST run by the Friends of Axmouth Church
Saturday 27th August: 8.30 am to 1 pm
Axmouth Village Hall: Prices very reasonable: Proceeds to the Tower Fund.
We had the marquee up for the previous night’s Music on the Green, so 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.
