Located in the centre of a growing village just outside Exeter, the Exminster congregation serves the local community through village organisations, the growing use of its premises, and pastoral care. We upgraded the church and hall in 2016/17 and regularly welcome visitors onto the premises, both during services and at other times during the week. All age worship will continue, as will Cafe Church.
Although 2020 has been nothing like normal Exminster Churches wanted to bring some Christmas cheer to our village. With this in mind an outdoor Nativity Trail around the village was planned allowing everyone regardless of age, a chance to have some fun and exercise, while following all the rules necessary for our own safety. It was very popular with lots of happy smiley faces of children and adults alike. Over 200 people signed up online to take part!
Following the event treat bags were delivered to the homes of the children who had completed a quiz which involved matching the description of a setting to the scene. From the feedback we have received both from the people, as they travelled round the Nativity trail and on Facebook, it is clear how very much the village appreciated all the time and effort that was put into the Nativity Trail.
Messy Church meets monthly on Sundays at 4 pm – 6 pm.
Messy Church Exminster Messy Church was really pleased to be involved in the Nativity trail. The families were challenged with the task of making a Nativity character using a wooden spoon or a dolly peg. They did amazingly well. These were displayed in a wooden stable in the church garden. The stable was lit by torch light so the effect was lovely night and day. It has attracted many people of all ages who have said how lovely it was. The stable continued to draw people to look even after the Nativity trail weekend. There was even one lady who photographed the stable to send to her grandchildren living in Mauritius. Who would have thought a little stable would have been seen by children as far away as Mauritius!
