The Posada

During Advent a knitted Mary and Joeseph stayed in the homes of different families in the Port Isaac Stay and Play. On Christmas Eve they came into St Peter’s Church for the Crib & Christingle Service. In this photo Mary and Joseph are being taken around the farm.


RE and Assemblies

Our Children and family worker, Marcus Jones, is available to schools to help with delivery of specific lessons in the RE curriculum. Lesson will be tailor made to the class needs and will be interactive and sensitive to those from all faiths and to those with none. Marcus is also happy to consider requests for assistance with activities not directly related to the Christian faith.

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.

For details, contact Jill O’Grady 01208 880312

Pilgrimage with Mark’s Gospel

Mondays, 7-8.30pm, 9th January – 27th February, 2017
Most people think of a pilgrimage as a visit to a particular place but in truth we are on a Christian journey our whole lives. You are invited to join an eight week pilgrimage that is a journey together, in the Gospel of Mark in January and February. We plan to meet once a week on Mondays at Jill and Henry Gompertz’ house. Henry will prepare some material but this will be a journey together. Hopefully (in every sense) we will arrive at a different place from where we started and with a deeper knowledge of the shortest, most direct, and probably oldest gospel. If you plan to come along it would be a great help to let Jill or Henry know in advance but you can come anyway. Contact: 01208 869421.
