Pet Service

A service of praise and thanksgiving for our pets and creatures that bring us such joy and challenges, and give such support, loyalty and love.

Communion and Cake

For some people access into the church is a challenge, so we are very lucky to have a generous offer from St Buryan Academy to use their new Garden Room, which has easy access, is warm and has a kitchen and toilet, for a new simple short communion service followed by cake and tea, on the 2nd Thursday every month, at 4pm, starting Thursday 14th June. Everyone welcome.

Messy Church
we are continuing to reach out with this special ministry of Messy Church, but we could really do with some help. Do you think that you could spare about 3 hours every two months to come and help with Messy Church? Training given, DBS certificates will be needed, we can apply via our church. It is such a great fun filled activity and one that does make our hearts sing for joy too – tired joy at the end but joy nevertheless! Contact Vanda or Caroline Amos (chair) for more details

 

Reading in Church

Just a gentle reminder please, if you swap your Sunday reading/ Intercessions with someone else please don’t forget to either tell the person who organises the readings/readers on Sunday mornings, or mark the swap on the master copy in the vestry.
