Axmouth Church is part of the Axe Valley Mission Community. This indicates that we decided to put mission first in the life and witness of the church community. So what is our mission? 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:
1. Pastoral care – providing licensed and lay ministry, support and a listening ear for the bereaved, elderly, lonely and sick in our community (and more widely). We also run monthly Friendship Lunches for those on their own and the village hall offers a weekly Wednesday Coffee Morning.
2. The Parish News – serving the community by providing a forum for communication for the whole village.
3. Making Waves – raising money to support Axmouth’s adopted charities: currently Restore, the Exeter charity that helps victims of modern day slavery; the Jana Jyoti school in Nepal, with which we have a congregational connection; and SEAN, a worldwide ministry founded in Axmouth which trains and equips people in Christian Ministry across the world.
4. The church building – maintaining and developing it as a place of peace and prayer.
We would like every member of Axmouth Church to consider prayerfully these four areas and pick one. Which one stands out for you? Which one interests you? We would like you to sign up to joining one of the four areas of mission. The plan is that we will gather the people interested in the same area to pray, plan and support their chosen area of mission.
