Week beginning Sun 3 Apr

We are sad to announce the death during the week of Rosemary Barratt after a lengthy illness. Many of us knew her and will have enjoyed her leading our worship on the harp in former times. Deepest sympathy to our dear friend Terry, her brother, and all the family she leaves behind.

This is the beginning of Passiontide and we start a non-standard month at Axmouth Church. Holy Communion will be this week, and also on Easter Sunday, while next week on Palm Sunday we’ll have a donkey procession at 9.30 followed by an informal service. This will not be in church but in the Village Hall where we’ll also have some refreshments.

Details of all that and more in Pews News

Week beginning Sun 27 Mar

Mothering Sunday! Nicky was with us to take the service and preside at Communion. Frances, Hilary and Lesley spent yesterday picking primroses at Pinhay and distributed posies for all mothers. Sue made coffee for us after the service and Yvonne made cakes for everyone.

Plenty going on in the Axe Valley Mission Community. For details, see Pews News.

Week beginning Sun 20 March

COVID is still among us. Recently our vicar Nicky was off with it. She’s back among us but now it’s the turn of our rector Clive to be away from work. We include in our prayers not only them but also anyone known to you who is similarly afflicted.

We are still encouraging mutual consideration in our services, not only offering hand sanitising as you arrive but also encouraging the wearing of face coverings when moving about the church.

Lesley led us in a Service of Celtic Worship on Sunday. We hope those present enjoyed it. Next week is Mothering Sunday and Nicky will be here to preside at Communion.
