Events coming up
On the 5th of April at 7.30 it is the APCM which is the AGM of the Church. Anybody on the Electoral role or who is a regular worshipper is entitled to come along. The accounts are reviewed, reports read and the Church Wardens are elected. It isn’t actually as dull as it sounds though and there are light refreshments served!
Holy Week starts with Palm Sunday, 9th April at 9.30 in our church. This will be a family service. We are hoping to find a donkey or pony who might be able to lead us from the Village Hall to the Church, weather permitting!
Maundy Thursday, 13th April at 7.30. Brenda and Jane will wash the feet of the congregation. This signifies one of the last acts that Jesus undertook on Earth, washing his Disciples feet at the Last Supper and delivers to us an important message.
On Holy Saturday, 15th April, there is a service at St Nectan’s, Stoke, at 8pm. This where all the churches of the Coast Mission Community will bring their new Paschal Candles to be lit and blessed before being returned to their home church where the flame is then used to light Baptismal and wedding candles and is lit for funerals for the entire year.
Easter Sunday, 16th April and will be a Welcombe Service followed by teas and coffees.
On the 25th May it is Ascension Day. This is 40 days after Easter and it is when we observe when Jesus ascended in to Heaven. This year we thought it would be nice to mark it and so are having a walk from the Church, down to the beach and back for a light supper. Meeting at the Church at 6.30pm.
So that is another busy few months in our lovely little Church and we hope there is something there for everyone and Happy Easter!
