Armistice Day Service Saturday 11th November 2017 at 10.30 am

This short service is open to everyone and includes the two-minute silence at 11.00 am. Tea and coffee will be served after the service

We have been given an offertory bowl made by an Exminster resident and donated in memory of his grandfather, who served in WWI and was a Methodist Local Preacher. Amongst those being remembered at the Armistice Service is also his uncle, killed at Passchendaele on 6th November 1917, aged 19. The service will incorporate a poem composed on the battlefield in 1915 by the grandfather and there will also be a special recognition by name of those who died 100 years ago in 1917. If you would like a relative remembered by name as part of this service, please forward the details (Name, Regiment, Date and Circumstances of Death if known) to exminstermethodists@yahoo.co.uk .

The next Café Church contemporary style service is on 19 November at 6.00 pm, finishing by 7.30 pm. We start with coffee/tea and nibbles. The evening will be using creative ideas to encourage participation, reflection and help us to worship in new ways. There will be opportunity for prayer, singing, discussion, dramatic monologues or dialogues, meditation, videos and music clips. This is for all the family, so please come along, bring friends, and join in, as we explore together a treasury of ideas and encouragement, and discover more of Jesus and his love. With the exception of December 2017, Café Church is now due to be held regularly on the third Sunday of each month.
