1,000 Angels Have you seen or heard of the knitted Christmas Angels? They are made using a simple knitting pattern or can be crocheted. The aim is to knit 1,000 angels by the next (10th) Exminster Christmas Tree Festival in December. These will then be given away with a small message attached. Can you help please by knitting some during 2018? Knitting patterns are available. Please email exminstermethodists@yahoo.co.uk Double knitting or four-ply wool is also needed please. Thank you




There was a large congregation for our Christmas Eve ‘Nativity from scratch’ with several people, of all ages, taking part and wearing costumes. There were also actions for all the congregation as the Christmas Story was told in a lively and interesting way. It was lovely to share the story with five families. On Christmas Day a good congregation met to celebrate this very special day. The collection of £151.70 has been sent to Action for Children.


The Cross Each Sunday during Lent 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 plan to use Palm Crosses brought back from The Gambia. At the Good Friday Service of meditation and reflection, led by Julian and when we are usually joined by friends from Exeter and the village, nails will be driven into the cross. On Easter Day everyone is invited to bring a flower or flowers to transform the cross.
