Easter celebrated at Kilmington
Message of hope proclaimed from the Armada Beacon
WORSHIPPERS in Kilmington turned out in force to celebrate Easter Sunday.
In the morning 18 “disciples”, with children and dogs, assembled at the Shute Armada beacon, which was used as the symbolic cave for a short service entitled “A reflection on the empty tomb”.
The words “Jesus Christ is risen today” echoed down over Shute and Colyton from the hill as the early risers sang their praises.
Later nearly 170 people packed St Giles Church where two local children were baptised.
