St Mabyn Church Summer Fete

Ignore all rumours to the contrary – the St Mabyn Church Summer Fete is definitely on! It will be held on the village green on the afternoon of Saturday 16th June, and there will be the usual stalls, activities and entertainments, plus a few new ones. Save the date in your diaries!

We will be contacting all the people we have details for who have helped in previous years, but if you don’t hear from us in the next week or two, or if you have not been involved previously and would like to join in, please contact:

Jan Fisher:
Jill Campbell:

As ever, there will be lots of work to do on Friday evening and Saturday morning to set up on the green, and after the fete to clear it all away again, as well as manning the various stalls and activities. All volunteers will be very welcome.

We are really looking forward to this much-loved event, and hope you will support us as novice organisers!

Best wishes to all,
Jill Campbell

Bible Study

In the past two years the St Mabyn Bible Study group has completed a number of courses including:
  1. The Bible
  2. Church and Kingdom
  3. The Eucharist
  4. The Creeds
These are part of a series of Pilgrim courses ‘for the Christian journey’, (from Church Publishing House) 
As we get older we do know that there is probably more road behind us than is ahead of us. 
So what difference does being a Christian make? Well, the journey that ends in death becomes a holy pilgrimage that ends in life. We set our sights on understanding more of God’s kingdom of justice and peace and the way before us. 
The courses are designed to help discover this Christian way of life. It unpacks the basic message and teaching of the Christian faith
We have also completed a number of York courses including:
  1. The Psalms, prayers for today’s church
  2. So what are you waiting for? Eternity to time
  3. Build on the Rock; faith, doubt – and Jesus
And two Truro Diocesan Lent courses; the Bishop’s Lent challenge (2017) and Responding to God’s Grace (2018). These courses have enabled us to better understand how God reaches out to every one of us with love
We are due to start another York course ‘Tough talk” on Tuesday 24th April, gathering at Trelowarth, Watergate Lane St Mabyn from 10.15 am and starting around 10.30; with lunch at the pub for those in need.

St Mabyn Church Children’s Corner

Warmest thanks to Jan Fisher and Jenny Coltart for re-establishing, and refurbishing the Children’s Corner in Church. It is now a delightful and inviting space and has already met with great approval from visiting children as well as those who attended the special Mothering Sunday Service. Why not pop into church and have a look?
