Give a Tent for Lent

This year ShelterBox are running a campaign called ‘Give a Tent for Lent’. They are inviting churches to help provide shelter for a family in need by raising the cost of a specially designed ShelterBox tent (£317) during the month of Lent.

Last year 26.5 million people were left without vital shelter, having been forced to flee their homes due to conflict and disaster. The provision of emergency shelter can make a huge difference to families left without anything.

The support that ShelterBox has received from Christian groups for nearly twenty years has meant that they have been able to help over a million people in desperate need, to recover from disaster.

For the people of Sulawesi who are still coming to terms with the effects of the recent earthquake and tsunami, a tent means more than just a place to stay. It is a sanctuary from chaos, a safe comfortable haven to sleep in, a chance for families to regain their privacy, and a space to take stock.

Every penny and pound we raise will help ShelterBox to provide tents and other aid items, such as solar lights, water filtration, blankets, pots and pans.

Please do give generously towards this valuable cause.

Poetry in the Making

led by Dr Rowan Williams

Saturday 27 April , 10am-3pm

How do poets actually work? What is it that makes poetry what it is ( not just prose cut up into lengths)?  In this reflective day Rowan Williams will look at the work of three twentieth century poets (W.H.Auden, R.S.Thomas and Geoffrey Hill), as well as speaking about his own work, to explore what is going on in the actual writing of poetry, especially poetry that looks at themes of faith and doubt.

Tickets £12. Bring a picnic lunch.

Skills to Improve Your Life

led by Brian Tregunna

Saturday 6 April , 10am-3pm

A unique opportunity to learn about and practise a range of important and proven life-skills as explained in the popular self-help life coaching book ‘A Life Now Worth Living’ by Ashley Gordon and Brian Tregunna.

Tickets £10. Bring a picnic lunch.

Endelienta Open Exhibition: FOUR

St Endellion Church, 1 February to 31 March

The title of our third open exhibition implies a sense of structure and completion, for example in the four sides of a square, the four seasons, the four natural elements, or the four cardinal wind directions. It also reflects the format of this exhibition, specially conceived to replace our traditional open exhibition while the hall is being refurbished. All selected pieces are in A4 portrait format and will be exhibited on stands in the church in specially created books.
Expect an extraordinarily varied range of works including paintings, drawings, original prints, and photographs.
