There is a church service this week – but not in Axmouth. Why? Please read on.
The normal service pattern at Axmouth Church is 10 am on Sundays including Holy Communion on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. Some months have 5 Sundays, however. On those occasions, all 8 churches in the Axe Valley Mission Community gather to worship together. The service for this Sunday will be at the Minster Church, Axminster, at 10:30 am. It will also be streamed live online.
More on that in the latest Pews News, where Shuna writes about the Trinity and you will find all the latest from the Axe Valley Mission Community of churches, of which we in Axmouth are part.
We heard our organ being played before the 10am Sunday Service (!) and we were pleased to welcome Roger, not only to play but also to lead our worship.
We also have an extra service this week – Night Prayer (or Compline as the prayer book calls it) – on Tuesday evening at 7 pm. This is part of the Church’s annual initiative called “The Kingdom Come”. We make that prayer all the time, but what does it actually mean? Well, in this context it’s a global prayer movement inviting Christians to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. Our Night Prayer or ‘Compline’ is part of it – it’s a quiet, reflective service to help you unwind after a busy day and give God an opening to speak about it to you.
