Painting as Pilgrimage – Reflective Day

A reflection on painting as pilgrimage, led by David Marl
Saturday 29 April, 10am – 3pm, St Endellion Church

Alongside his exhibition in St Endellion Hall, artist and priest David Marl will lead a reflective day on life and painting as a pilgrimage, in which each step is exploratory, a moving towards God through a landscape that contains elements of the divine.

Reflective Days

Praying the Psalms, led by Carol Miller
Saturday 22 April, 10am – 3pm, St Endellion Church

Come along with your Bible or book of psalms together with pens and note paper and spend a day bathed in the wonder of the psalms. The day will provide you with space for contemplation, silence and a chance to connect with your most intimate self in the presence of God. The day encourages us to visit the psalms in a way we wouldn’t normally do.

School visits

Schools are welcome for educational visits in all of our churches. For more information please contact Elizabeth Wild or Marcus Jones.

School Study Days at St Endellion

School parties are invited to visit St Endellion for an Educational Study Day.

The children are introduced to the main features of the church and then they break into study groups.

Half of the class will look at the colours of the church year, the Vestments and the items used in the celebration of the Eucharist ‘play’ the organ ring the bells. The other half go into the Church Hall to paint or to do some 3D craft work which can be taken back to school. After a break at mid morning the groups swap so that everyone has a chance to do everything.

For schools who wish to stay for the afternoon there is a chance to do some creative writing. All leaders are teachers or members of the clergy.

These days are suitable mainly for Key Stage 2 pupils and are proving popular.
