Mothering Sunday

A warm welcome to all this coming Sunday, at 1030am (please note start time) when the Reverend David Pollard will lead our special, non-communion, service, with the children from the school

Parochial Church Council

The PCC meets next Saturday, 12 March, so if you have any matters you would like to see discussed – location of the singers / musicians / service format (the traditional services being used for Lent have proved popular) and any future activities please contact one of the churchwardens.

Church Spring Cleaning

We traditionally give the Church a thorough spring clean before Easter and if you would like to give a hand – many hands make light work! – and have some time on Monday 14th (start time 9.30am onwards or the following day please give Anthea Lobb a ring on 841581

The Lent Course

Our Lent course continues each Tuesday morning until Easter, very kindly hosted by David and Mary Bishop at their home, Trelowarth, Watergate Lane – and newcomers are always welcome. 1015 for coffee and a 1030am start. We are considering the Creeds. A warning – the group generally adjourns to the pub for lunch afterwards! and indeed anyone who would like to join us just for lunch is most welcome.

Sunday Church Service

The Reverend Dave Elkington led our service of Holy Communion, with Steve Williams preaching an excellent sermon. The Music Group has now been augmented by a keyboard – it’s almost a band in its own right now! Refreshments are always served afterwards and many thanks to the bakers of the great Welsh Cakes, and also a super lemon sponge.

There is a table at the back of the church with a wide selection of magazines – do come in at any time for a browse (they cover all sorts of hobbies and not just of a religious nature!) and please take home any you would like.

Speaking Out 2016

A challenge for Lent
St Tudy and St Mabyn were the first people to speak about Jesus in our area of North Cornwall,
They have been followed by many generations of faithful people speaking of salvation and hope.
It is  by these first saints telling their story and then others telling their story that we arrive at today.
Bishop Tim has issued a challenge for 2016  and is asking people to tell their stories of faith and share with others something of what is important to them  and why.
It is a challenge that before Easter two thousand and sixteen faith stories will be spoken and heard in Cornwall ie. to  speak hope, to speak love, to tell story.
This may be done with members of our your family , friends or shared in Church or the pub !
It may be a story about someone else who has shared  their story with you in the past.
If you would like to write a few words then this could be emailed to a friend  or published  anonymously on a website eg or shared on social media.

Story telling has always been with us and certainly outdates modern technology so please keep this tradition going.
Bishop Tim
