Annual Church Meeting

At our Annual Church meeting Colin Hyde and Carol Grigg were re-elected as Churchwardens and a full list of members of the PCC is posted in the porch of the church. WE were all delighted to learn that the church electoral roll now stands at 55 and we have all been so pleased to welcome the new members.

Maundy Thursday Service

Do come and join us for our Agape meal and Tenebrae sung by Roscarrock Revival – this is always a very moving occasion, and of course also with much enjoyable fellowship.

Easter Sunday Service

The Reverend Canon Dave Elkington will conduct our service of Holy Communion for Easter Sunday, and blessing and distribution of the Palm Crosses  this coming Sunday, 20 March at 10am. Refreshments are always served afterwards and offers the opportunity to socialise with friends old and new.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.

Lent Course

The Lent course is an exploration into the truth of the Christian faith as revealed in Jesus Christ.

The first session on 17th February was an introduction to the creeds - what we believe in and trust.
We covered the Apostles creed - which sets out the faith of the Church and the Nicene creed, a more detailed summary of what the church believes.
We spent much of the time exploring the reasons the creeds were developed.

The second sessions, which were on 24th February explored the profound and wonderful truth that God is Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We looked at and were inspired by Russian Icons of the Trinity.
We discussed the love and self-giving within the Trinity and which person of the Trinity we found it hardest to engage with and why!

In the third session, on Tuesday 1st March, we explored the unique nature of Jesus.
This will teach us a great deal about God and what it is to be human.

On Thursday 21 April 2016 the Queen will be 90 years old, and St Mabyn Parish Council have decided to mark the occasion by joining in the lighting of Beacons.  There is a long tradition in Britain of lighting beacons on Royal occasions.  It could turn out to be a very enjoyable village get-together.
More information re: location etc. will follow shortly. Carol Bray


Collectively, St Mabyn raised £613.43 which went towards the Wadebridge District total of £24,500 +.  The Wadebridge District is made up of St Mabyn, Rock, Polzeath, and of course Wadebridge itself.  Many thanks to everyone in St Mabyn and Longstone who gave so generously.  Carol Bray
