KILMINGTON: Congregation moves Easter service outside
Thursday, 01 May 2014
Outside the Beacon
Using the Shute Woods Armada Beacon as the symbolic tomb, 17 members from the congregations of St Giles’ Church and the Baptist Church in Kilmington assembled at 7am on Easter Sunday outside the Beacon and found the “tomb” empty! During a short informal service of prayers, readings and hymns, “Jesus Christ is Risen today” echoed down the Axe Valley. More than 120 people attended the 9.30am family communion in St Giles’ Church, led by The Reverend Anne Mills, and the village hall was packed with Baptist worshippers, led by Pastor Darrell Holmes, in sight of their new chapel being built in the field alongside. The chapel will replace the one burnt down some five years ago and should be ready for use before Christmas.
