Sunday worship has been suspended

In the light of the latest lockdown and the Government's advice to stay at home, we regret to say that Sunday worship has been suspended by the PCC until 28th February at the earliest. These decisions have been taken by Churchwardens and Church Council members purely on the basis of people's safety. Please contact the Rector David Seymour if you would like to be included to receive weekly worship material on 01208 850088. 

We continue to pray for our communities and frontline workers at this difficult time.
For any personal prayer requests for the sick or anything that may be troubling you, please contact secretary Jan Fisher 01208 852182

Church services at St Mabyn for this month

 Just to let you know that as we are now in Tier 3 of Covid regulations, our church can remain open for services as previously but, in line with hospitality covid guidelines, our church cafe must remain firmly closed, so no hot coffee afterwards I'm afraid.

The church services at St Mabyn for this month are as follows:

Sunday 3rd - Morning Prayer with Robin

Sunday 17th - Holy Communion with Steve.

I hope you have all heard the good news today that the Oxford vaccine will be rolled out very soon, so there is light on the horizon. My sleeve is already rolled up!

Very Best Wishes all for a very Happy and Healthy Christmas,

Jan

Secretary for St Mabyn church

Carol singing



There was a great village turnout to enjoy the St Mabyn Church Carol singing on Saturday 19th December. The sun shone for us as we all enjoyed the outdoor singing accompanied by Sandra Williams on the accordion. 

There were many positive comments from the community as adults and children alike enjoyed singing some of our favourite carols. We all enjoyed coffee and mince pie's at half time and then did it all again to an even bigger crowd outside of the pub!!  Thank you to everyone who took part and made it such a joyous occasion!

Armistice Day

We are very sorry and regret to announce that after careful reading of the new Government Guidelines and the Church of England Guidelines we are having to cancel the outdoor ceremony on Armistice Day.

This is of course not what we want but we have to abide by the law.
There will be a short act of remembrance on Sunday but again (in accordance with the guidelines) we are advising the general public not to attend.
While we cannot meet together in person, we can join together in prayer and remembrance for those who fell, and those whose lives have been forever changed.

Private prayer on Wednesday and Sunday mornings from 10-12noon.

Due to the new Covid guidelines and Lockdown, unfortunately services in church will now cease until further notice. Following our recent PCC meeting however, it was decided that the church will open for private prayer on Wednesday and Sunday mornings from 10-12noon. On Sundays, I will be in church to play gentle, reflective music from the great CD collection that I have been loaned by folks.  I hope we can have some candles lit and that the prayer tree can come back into it's own and will be laden with prayers over the next few weeks. Prayer can be so sustaining for us and even better in our beautiful church surroundings.

As always, please follow Covid guidelines when entering the church - there will be one new one, (a small TICKET for you to lay down on the chair where you have sat to avoid cross contamination for future users in the session) and as always, please do not come if you are feeling unwell.

Remembrance

 This year at St Mabyn we will be observing Remembrance with a short outdoor ceremony at the War Memorial on Wednesday 11th November (Armistice Day itself) at 10.45am.

The group taking part will be strictly limited to 6 but others may attend, though we are advised to keep numbers small. All must observe distancing of 1-2 metres. It is suggested that people who attend might stand in the Cemetery behind the Memorial.
