A warm welcome is extended, both to those who know and love the Lord Jesus
Christ and who wish to gather with us to worship Him, and also to those who
would like to hear more of Him and His truth as declared in His gospel.
Honiton Sovereign Grace Meeting
Sundays 10:45am (D.V.)
Honiton Sovereign Grace
is a gathering of God’s people, who meet under the sound of His
Gospel, having come to know the forgiveness of their sins through the blood of
Jesus Christ shed upon the cross. God has gathered us under this Gospel by His
grace that we might meet as one people, united in Christ, who knowing the love
of God as revealed in Christ to His people, seek to worship Him “in spirit and
Having gathered (as a group of between 8 and 12) to hear the preaching of the
Gospel of Christ in Honiton, on Monday nights since 1999, since September 2008
a few of us also began to gather in a public hall on Sunday mornings as a
witness to the truth in the local area - this being the first day of the week,
on which day Christ rose from the grave having conquered sin and death for His
people in order to grant them everlasting life in Him. Though our Sunday
meetings are tiny in number (and now fewer than when we began) we still thank
the Lord for His goodness towards us over the past year as we have looked to
Him to bless the preaching of His word, to His glory alone. Whilst we cannot
tell what the future holds, we nevertheless know that it is Christ alone who
builds His church, that He uses His gospel to build it, and that wherever He
sends forth His word it never
returns unto Him void.
These meetings are held at Awliscombe Village Hall at 10.45am on Sunday
mornings. Awliscombe is just a couple of miles north of Honiton on the A373 to
Cullompton and the village hall is easily found on the right hand side as you
enter the village from the Honiton side. A large car park is situated right
next to the hall, alongside the Awliscombe Inn, with ample parking space, and
the hall has full disabled access, toilets and a kitchen.
The format of the meetings is simple, comprising the reading of God’s word (the
Bible), prayer, and listening to the preaching of Christ in His Gospel.
(We would remind visitors to be mindful that this is a worship service in which
the Lord's people seek to approach unto a Holy and Almighty God in due
reverence. We approach unto Him through the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Head
of His church, as set forth in 1 Corinthians 11.)
At the first Sunday morning meeting on 21st September we heard the
following message preached.
