All Age Worship in January followed the theme of the from

1 Corinthians 12 v12:

 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. (New International Version)


During the service, everyone in the congregation chose a coloured ribbon and were invited to weave it together with all the others.


Please see the photo of the completed 'parts of the body' weave which is now displayed on the front wall in the church.


In February, All Age Worship theme came from Matthew Chapter 13, The Parable of the Sower. This time everyone was invited to come and feel and look at examples of rocky ground, shallow soil, thorny ground and good soil.


In March we look forward to All Age Worship on 24th. If you know of anyone or any families who might appreciate this more relaxed style of service, please tell them about it. Thank you.



The Cross Each Sunday during Lent (starting on Sunday 10th March) we will be adding a symbol to the rough cross (made from the trunk of the Christmas Tree), such as a palm branch, a purple robe, a crown of thorns, thirty pieces of silver etc. to remind us of the events of Easter. On Palm Sunday we hope to have Palm Crosses made by young people in The Gambia and recently brought back to the UK. At the Good Friday Service of meditation and reflection, led by our minister we hope to be joined by a number friends from the Exeter Methodist churches, nails will be driven into the cross. On Easter Day (21st April) everyone will be invited to bring a flower or flowers to transform the cross. After the service, the cross is carried outside and placed by the road.




Decorating the hall. It has been confirmed that decorating of the hall and its entrance area is to take place during the week commencing 8th April 2019. This is happening during the school Easter holidays to try and minimise disruption to users. The hall floor is due to be professionally cleaned and oiled and this is now likely to take place on 11th or 12th April. These works should be completed before our Good Friday and Easter Day services.
