It was a great pleasure to welcome back the Reverend Canon Dave Elkington to conduct the service for our Patronal Festival for St Mabena, and also members of the other congregations on the Benefice. Warmest thanks to the members of the Worship Band for the delightful music during the service sand also to the many providers of the super Patronal Feast afterwards! This coming Sunday, 26 November, the Reverend David Pollard will conduct our usual service of Holy Communion at 10am, a warm welcome to all.

There was an amazing turnout for this, with a full church and a very large crowd at the War Memorial after the service led by the Reverend David Pollard. Lessons were read by Brigadier Gage Williams, and also Joe, from St Mabyn Scouts – all the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers were smartly turned out and a credit to their parents and leaders, it was heart warming to see so many.
There are some lovely photos on the Village Facebook Page!
There were also many former and current members of the Armed Forces present – lots of medals! and at the War Memorial former Colour Sergeant David Cameron made the dedication. Thanks to those who acted as stewards to ensure the closure of the roads at the crossroads to ensure that we could honour the fallen in respectful silence.

The new course for Advent, called “So what are you waiting for?” by the Reverend Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James’s Piccadilly, has started and will continue each Tuesday, meeting at Trelowarth, Watergate Lane, home of David and Mary Bishop, at 10.15 am for coffee and then start at 10.30am. Don’t worry of you couldn’t make the first one, the course is over weeks and there is a book, and a CD too. Everybody is welcome and if you haven’t been before the format is to arrive for a chat over a drink and biscuits before settling down to work. Everyone can have their say and contribute their ideas, if they wish – and those who want to then retire to the pub for lunch! further details from 01208 – 840010
